School Library Goals
Our goal is to enable students to become information literate and effective lifelong readers.
Our program provides educational and technological opportunities to students and staff addressing their needs and abilities. It is the goal of our library media program to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information and to encourage leisure use of worthwhile materials.
Parents, please feel free to stop by and become acquainted. We have plenty of comfortable places to sit and enjoy literature or use the internet. Our Destiny Quest search stations make it possible to find books and do research with ease. WebPath Express gives students a portal with safe and productive web links. Washington students know how to be prepared for a research projects. See more library programs and plans on our Google calendar.
We use the STAR Test for reading level placement.
What can you do as a parent?
Make it a point to know what your child's reading level and reading goals are. Reading is very important to your child and it takes practice, so make sure that they are reading every day. Remember it does not have to be just books, it can be newspapers, magazines, cereal boxes, or street signs. Be sure to visit your school library on Parenting Day and any PTO night. Reading is something that your child will do every day from now on.
