Our Mission

Our mission is to create an environment that promotes learning for all students in grades K-5 by providing equitable access to information. In addition, we seek to teach information literacy skills and encourage all students to be lifelong learners by providing a wide variety of texts in which all students can see themselves represented.

We want students to grow into strong, voracious, curious readers. Our mission is to support teachers in educating students about  responsibly consuming information as well as responsibly creating information. We seek to provide equitable opportunities for students to inquire, research, learn, communicate, create, critically think and collaborate with others.
