An important new study of Pennsylvania's schools shows that students in schools with full-time librarians score substantially higher on reading and writing tests than their counterparts in schools that lack librarians.
Being a new IB school we are getting a lot of questions from parents wondering what IB is about, and more specifically, how PYP is different than what we are doing now. This website has a lot of great information for parents, but also ways to share it in easy-to-understand ways for all stake holders.

When I first started my makerspace at Stewart Middle Magnet School back in January of 2014, I was figuring everything out as I went along. The term was still brand new, I couldn’t find any maker sessions at conferences, and there were only a handful of other school libraries sharing about their makerspaces. Armed with a couple of books on the growing Maker Education Movement and a dream to create an engaging environment in my library, I gathered some supplies, put them out there, and waited to see what would happen. My ideas and philosophy were constantly growing and evolving as we tried new activities and formats at my school. Some experiments worked; some failed miserably. But I learned from each and every one as our makerspace grew into an integral part of our library culture. Looking back on the last year and a half, I’ve realized that there’s several essential lessons I’ve learned in getting our makerspace going. Hopefully they can help save you some stress (and reassure you that everything will be awesome).
