The students at Lakeview Middle School are focusing on improving their Lexile Reading Levels by taking part in the 5 Star Victory Reading program created by Teacher-Librarian Amanda Scroggs.  Each week during their library time Mrs. Scroggs has students select books using five strategies, which include variety, volume, visualization, verbalization, and vocabulary development.  She explained each aspect of this program, provided instruction and examples, and offers support to students as they select the books that they are going to read and eventually book talk to other students.

Our Goal

The main goal of the Library Services program for Warsaw Community Schools is to support our district's mission of inspiring and equipping all students to continuously acquire and apply knowledge and skills while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others. We help students achieve this mission by teaching them strong information literacy skills that enable our students to identify, evaluate, apply, and ethically use a wide variety of electronic and print information sources to meet their knowledge needs.
