    Cascadia Library


    Welcome to Cascadia’s Library where we love to learn and read!! Our mission is to foster a love of reading while also supporting our students as they develop information literacy skills.

    What's New in the Library?

    Digital Citizenship

    Students in all grade levels have been actively engaged in a digital citizenship unit, focused on internet safety and responsibility. Primarily, students have been learning about what information must remain private, how to evaluate to website for appropriateness and for the older students, how to recognize and avoid cyber bullying. The 5th grade students are also working on evaluating websites for research purposes.  As we wrap up the unit, students will be given a chance to share what they have learned and put their new understandings into practice. It is my hope that all Cascadia students practice safe and responsible online behavior at school and at home.

     

    Global Reading Challenge

    Several 4th and 5th grade students have been participating in the Global Reading Challenge hosted by the Seattle Public Library. This challenge offers students the opportunity to read several books as a team and become experts on them. Next week, on February 6th, teams will compete against each other on book trivia. The winning team of the in-school competition will advance to the semi-finals round downtown to compete against the winning teams from other elementary schools. All of our Cascadia teams have been working hard. Good luck, Dragons!!

     

    Black Lives Matter Week of Action in Schools!

    Seattle Schools, along with many districts nationwide, will be participating in Black Lives Matter Week of Action in Schools. The goal is to, "spark an ongoing movement of critical reflection and honest conversation in school communities for people of all ages to engage with critical issues of racial justice." In the library, we will be reading stories that highlight issues of racial inequity and provide students with an opportunity to dialog about them.
