Woodbury Elementary School’s media center is a vibrant hub for learning. It consists of a well-stocked library, a class size Chromebook and computer station, four innovation STEAM labs, an Accelerated Reader testing area, and collaborative work spaces.
The library section has a large collection of books available to students and staff for check out. Students love to browse the shelves looking for that special book to read. With over 18,000 books, from the classics to technology and everything in between, students have access to a world of adventure, an incredible amount of information, and stories that capture their attention and inspire their thinking. Our inventory is constantly being reviewed and additions are made throughout the year.
Our media center staff provide instruction to classes of students in our Chromebook and computer stations, as well as manage four state of the art computer labs located in our school hallways, grade level Chromebook and iPad carts, LCD projectors, document cameras, and classroom amplification systems. Students and staff use these resources to collaborate, practice problem solving techniques and presentation skills, research, form complex analysis, and develop a foundation of ethical and responsible use.
In our media center innovation STEAM labs, students in grades 2-6 participate in a weekly experience and students in grades TK-1 participate in a STEAM lab experience three times annually utilizing the design process to create, innovate, fail, persevere, and learn in science, technology, engineering, art, and math. The purpose of our STEAM labs is to provide students with an engaging project-based STEAM learning experience that will better prepare them for the 21st century.
We have many exciting things happening in our media center and many resources available to our students and staff. Please take a look around and peruse through our website information. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of our media center staff or your child’s teacher.
