Students are taught specific grade level skills relating to how to be a good digital citizen. Those skills are reinforced throughout the year as students use the computers to access information for research or to complete cooperative learning tasks.
Library will look a little different this year. We are still determining what library might look like during in-person learning as the space may need to be used as a classroom.
During remote learning, I am hoping to provide access to a virtual library portal where students will be able to log in with their Google Account and place a book or two on hold. The books will get pulled during the week and checked out to students and be available for pick-up on the Monday school supply drop-off/pick-up days. Library books returned to OLG library will be quarantined for 72-96 hours minimum according to published safety guidelines.

In addition, I plan to continue to promote the love of reading and participation in the Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book Award process for grade K-3. Throughout the year I will be recording or live streaming the reading books nominated for the award. In the spring, students will get to vote for their favorite book. The final vote from our school will be submitted along with many other schools across the state. The winning book will be announced around the end of May.
Students in grades 4, 5, and 6 will be provided support for using a variety SPL databases for research as well as have the opportunity to participate in the Battle of the Books program.
Our Lady of Guadalupe students are encouraged to activate a Seattle Public Library card account as early as first grade. Students at a variety of grade levels are learning to access resources available to them from the Seattle Public Library.
