The mission of the LRC program is to provide students and staff with quality resources, guided access to information, and instruction in order to support the curriculum, enhance teaching, and foster a lifelong love of reading and learning in all students.
At Ferson Creek, our Pre-K-5 students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of learning experiences connected to their grade-level content & curriculum in our Learning Resource Center (LRC). Over the course of their elementary career, students engage in co-taught lessons centered on digital & information literacy to hone their skills in locating, analyzing, evaluating, interpreting, & communicating information.
It is our goal to support the curriculum through integrated and engaging instruction, optimizing student learning. We collaborate with teachers in order to provide students with physical & intellectual access to materials in multiple formats.
We promote enthusiasm for reading and aim to develop our students as 21st Century critical thinkers by accessing our diverse collection of reliable and current resources.
We have over 12,000 books in circulation, a lab with 30 Chromebooks, multiple search stations and a makerspace. Additionally, students are able to access laptop computers, Chromebooks, and iPads throughout the learning community.
Lost/Damaged Book Policy
In the event a student loses or damages a book, he or she must notify the LRC staff. A follow up communication will be provided regarding the replacement process and cost of the book. Until the lost or damaged book is paid for, the student may not check out another book.
If a lost book has been paid for and is then found during the current school year, staff will issue a refund.
Book Check Out Policy
Each week, our Pre-K & Kindergarten students are encouraged to check out one book, our first and second grade students two books, and our third through fifth grade students up to three books. All books have a one-week check out period, however studentsmay renew their books by bringing them to the the LRC.
