Makerspace/STEAM shelfStudents may come to the library throughout the day to use the makerspace/STEAM activities with their teacher's permission. They must be respectful to other classes using the library, and remember to clean up after themselves when they leave. Library staff may not be able to sit and work with students on their activities if there is another class in the library. Students need to use their problem solving skills to come up with a solution to the problems that they encounter if the librarian or library aide are not available. Please contact Ms. Prock for more information.CHAMPS behavior in the library:Library follows CHAMPS to ensure students meet expectations and make the best of their time in the library.
