LibraryA few words from Mrs. Waggoner, OES Library Media Specialist.....

I believe that all children can learn to read and that reading is the key to success in all academic areas. Knowing that all children are different and that they all come with various strengths and weaknesses, my goal is to create a positive learning environment where students can feel safe taking risks. I differentiate my teaching to reach students with various learning styles including hands-on projects, oral presentations, drama, music, videos and art projects in my weekly lessons.

Students have the opportunity to visit the library each week with their class and each morning during our open checkout time. Kindergartners and First Graders each choose 1 book per visit. Second, Third, and Fourth Graders choose two books per visit and Fifth Graders choose a total of 3 books.
