Ms. Mckay

All students have access to the school library and computer lab.  PK-5 are scheduled for library time each week.  I do read-louds with all grade levels and incorporate mini-lessons on library and information skills while also collaborating with other teachers to include core subject areas.  Time for reading to self and checking out books is also included in their library time.  Please visit PTS Cool Links for great educational resources.  You can also access the library online catalog by clicking here or Destiny Quest under Elementary.  

Technology is an important part of library time. This year (2018/19) Mrs. Chery Bradley is teaching technology to grades K-1.  Mr. Sean Hart is teaching technology to grades 2-5.  Some media skills taught include, key boarding, research, 2.0 web tools, internet protocol, etc.   Kindergarten through second grades primarily work on KidPix to learn computer basics while integrating homeroom subject areas.  Third through 5th grades  focus on practicing key boarding skills and research strategies.

Library Agreements:

1.  Listen and Follow Directions (Body to self)

2.  Raise hand to speak (No interrupting)

3.  Be nice! (to others and teacher)

If these agreements are broken, the student gets a warnng, then takes a break, and if undesireable behaviour continues, a letter is sent home to be signed by both student and guardian and returned to school.  Always feel free to contact me via email or phone 626-5468 ext. 1204 or 1210, preferably in the morning or after school. Thank you for your support.
