Guidelines for Being Kind to the Learning Commons

The Learning Commons is a shared space.  As members of this shared space our learners are reminded to be responsible and respectful of themselves, others using this shared space and the resources (books, technology, materials). To show care and concern for all the resources, technology and print, food and drinks are not welcomed in this space. All users of the Learning Commons will take care of our Learning Commons by respecting the work of others and tidying up afterwards. When possible, students are encouraged to try to be environmentally friendly and re-use or re-think.

Since this space is meant to be shared and we are continuing to build our Spanish bilingual literature collection, students are encouraged to return books every two weeks. For our younger students, many teachers have a regular book exchange time and they come to the Learning Commons as a whole class to sign out books for their reading pleasure.  As these children mature, they will continue to need guidance from home, so that they remember to return their books in a timely matter so that these books may be enjoyed by many students throughout the year.  The Learning Commons is a place where students are welcome to grow as learners!

The Learning Commons has many books, computers and a SmartBoard available to leverage the learning. We would like our students to have these wonderful resources for many years to come and to make that happen we all need to take measures to be responsible and respectful of these books and technology. On a regular basis, our staff will remind students of overdue books. It is the student’s responsibility to take care of the books and will be asked to replace books that have gone missing or have been damaged. Students know the expectations when using books and technology and are reminded to be mindful when using each of these resources.
