Welcome to the Pathfinder Library!
The library is located right in the heart of our school.
All K-8 classrooms visit the library every week to check out books. Books circulate for two weeks and may be renewed. Students can also put a hold on a book they are excited to read. There is no charge for overdue books, but it is school policy that thelibrary is reimbursed for lost or damaged books. This can be done easily on SchoolPay.
I’m excited about all the amazing opportunities we have to nurture our school’s culture of literacy. This year, the K-3 students will be able to vote for the Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book Award. The 4/5 students will participate in the Global Reading Challenge for the third year. Our middle school students are playing Book Bingo and will have the opportunity to participate in Project LIT book clubs throughout the school year. Middle school students can also elect to serve as library teachingassistants. They also have the opportunity to take a 3D printing class!
Thanks to the generosity of our PTSA, we are building a makerspace in the library. The students love building with Keva planks and doing puzzles, and as the year progresses, they will have many more opportunities to be builders and makers!
Volunteers are an important part of a vibrant library. Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to keep our library open for students before school. There are so many ways to help in the library, if you would like to volunteer, stop by and say hi, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
