Hello from Mrs. Wilson in the library!

This year the library is operating on an open library model. This allows students to go as frequently as they wish. I have already had the pleasure of students visiting during their language arts block and entire classes visiting for checkout. Students sill have the option to come to the library during the morning arrival time every day of the week. The open library model allows for students to visit more frequently throughout the school day and week. I look forward to continuing to collaborate with classroom teachers to support instruction and on research projects throughout the year. I am so excited this year to be able to serve our Apex Cougars!

Room Parents Needed!
If you are interested in helping out your child's teacher as a Room Parent this year, please let your teacher know that you would like to do this and ask for their OK to pass on your name and email address to me at If you would like to help out, but would prefer to share the duties with another parent, it is totally acceptable for 2 or 3 people to pool resources to help the teacher.
Once things have settled down a bit, we will schedule a Room Parent meeting, where we can discuss what is typically involved in this role. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any general questions.
