LIBRARIES AND MEDIA CENTERS
The Library and Media Center is a tool to enrich student’s understanding of the curriculum. It is open to all students throughout the school day. Small groups and individuals come on a scheduled and unscheduled basis to check out books, do research, or just and read and browse. Large groups of classes are scheduled by teachers and librarian. Students check out library books each Cycle.
The mission of the JKS school library program is to provide the necessary facilities to ensure that students and teachers use information in an effective way as life long learners. This mission is only accomplished through joint collaboration between the school librarians and the greater learning community. The library staff will:
- Provide the necessary instruction for acquiring ideas, evaluating resources, and using information with competence.
- Foster an interest in reading and the appreciation of literature by providing guidance individually, and in groups.
- Make materials available in various formats and ensure their ease of use.
- Collaborate with teachers to provide quality learning experiences that address the needs of individual students.
There are various online databases at the school to assist students in their research.
