PUTTING THE 'TEACHER'
IN PTO - Daniel Wright Library gets a makeover!
From the Desks of Mrs. Otto, Teacher/Library Specialist and Michelle Blackley, DW Principal:
The Daniel Wright JHS Library was awarded a $30,000 grant from the D103 PTO. District 103 enhanced those monies to allow the DW Learning Center to be renovated with new shelving, furniture, and customizable learning spaces for students!
The furniture and new shelving arrangements have breathed new life into the DW library. The space feels fresh and welcoming. The students report that it feels, "cool, comfy and cozy" and they say "We have more space to work and collaborate on projects".
We are feeling proud of our new space as it provides an updated area for the students, the staff and the community to gather. The flexibility of the learning
environment provides varied seating options, an array of collaboration arrangements, standing work stations and comfortable seating. It has also positively impacted
accessibility of the library resources for all students at DW.
This directly impacts teaching and learning for all students as it provides a space that promotes
thinking, creativity, and collaboration across the curriculum.
We are looking forward to the library becoming the hub of our school.
Thank you to the PTO and the D103 community for their continued support of one of our most valued resources.
