Library Happenings: 2015/2016

Welcome to the 
Rashkis 
Media Center!
"Information literacy - the ability to find and use information - is the keystone of lifelong learning. Creating a foundation for lifelong learning is at the heart of the school library media program."

The American Association of School Librarians


The mission of the Rashkis Elementary media program is to provide students and staff equitable access to a diverse set of ideas and information in a variety of formats ensuring they are effective, efficient, and ethical uses of this information. We operate a flexible schedule and promote open access to resources. Students come throughout the day to checkout and return books, research, and work on class assignments. In addition, Ms. Minton collaborates with classroom teachers to plan lessons that are relevant to classroom content and promote authentic application of concepts, such as research, reading skills, digital citizenship, and information literacy.

Library Happenings

Our Scholastic Book Fair was a huge success! Thank you to the PTA and all the parents who volunteered during the fair; I couldn't have done it without you! A huge shout-out to our whole school community for your support; we were able to add hundreds of books to our library and classrooms with our profit!
