April is School Library Month. As part of the celebration for School Library Month, the students at Jefferson Elementary have been participating in a reading contest.  The students have been writing reviews on the books that they are reading.  For every book review they write, the students get to place a ticket in for a prize drawing that happens every Friday during the month of April.  Don't miss out on all the fun - keep on reading!
Today in the Leesburg Library, the sixth grade students had the opportunity to Skype with Simone Liebster in France. Simone is a Holocaust survivor, and she is also the author of the book, Facing the Lion.  She shared with the students how she stood up to the Nazis at age twelve by refusing to sign their doctrine on racial superiority. To learn more about Simone's life you can check out her book, Facing the Lion, at the Holocaust Library which is located at Leesburg Elementary.  

The Maker Mindset is going strong in our libraries.  Students are researching, reading, and creating!  Several maker projects have been going on including, poetry creating stations at WCHS, pasta towers at Washington STEM, pet rocks at Leesburg, and Famous People Pop bottles at Harrison.  Stop by and check them out! 
After school today at the Leesburg Library 5th and 6th grade students were able to attend the Maker Club.  The students have several activities to choose from including 3D printing, robotics, coding, building, and crafting.  Today the students were learning how to knit.   
Last week the first grade students worked with Mrs. Watters, the Digital Learning Specialist, on various experiments to test their knowledge of solids, liquids, and gases.  The students have been studying and researching about these three types of matter during their Digital Learning Special this month.  They have gathered information from databases, books, and professional websites in order to prepare for these matter based experiments.

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.
