Hi, Welcome to the School #3 Library Webpage.
I am your child’s library/media specialist. I have been an educator for the past 15 years and have been a Library/Media Specialist in Belleville for the past nine years. I received both a Bachelors of Arts degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in English Writing and a Master’s of Education in Elementary Education with a concentration in library media from William Paterson University.
Our school's library media program supports early literacy skills and hopes to instill a love of reading in our students, which is the foundation to all learning. Additionally, our library program helps your child to develop essential information literacy skills that are a necessity for their future development. The 21st Century's child needs to learn and have the ability to locate, evaluate, synthesize, and communicate information.
I ask you to partner with me and your child's teacher in ensuring that we prepare your child for this very fast pace environment. Throughout the year, I will be introducing your child to various computer programs (Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) and several educational websites. If a computer is available please let them practice their skills. If a computer is not available, it would be very helpful for them to visit the Belleville Public Library.
This year, School Three is very excited to offer your child an exciting reading program, Scholastic Bookflix , where your child is able to read their favorite storybooks, either at home or at school. These books can be viewed on any computer, tablet, Smartphone that has an Internet connection. Additionally, the Bookflix program offers age appropriate websites that extend your child's learning.
Grades 3rd- 5th
