Media Center Mission Statement
We, the Media Team, as Instructional Partners, Information Specialists, Teachers, and Program Administrators will enable students to find information, evaluate information, appreciate information, use information, communicate information, use information ethically, transfer information to new situations, and choose reading as a lifelong activity. We will do this through collaboration, professional development, direct instruction, and the institution of programs and attitudes that support a love of reading and meet student/staff information and technology needs.
