Being polite means that students treat others as they would like to be treated. They use kind words such as "please", "thank you", and "you're welcome". They are supportive of each other. They are open-minded to others' ideas and opinions. They only touch property that is theirs or others' with the owner's permission. They are careful with others' property and are careful not to damage or destroy them.
While in the Library with their classes, students must be continuously striving to produce quality work whether as a part of a lesson or some other academic activity such as checking out library books.
Students should come to the Library with all the necessary materials they need to be "productive". This means that secondary students have brought a current school ID to check out library books. Students, if requested, have brought a Chromebook or laptop if working online or something to write with and write on if doing non-computer work. Being prepared also means that students come with a positive, motivated attitude and a willingness to "get things done".
Students who come as a class are expected to arrive with their class and leave with their class. Students who are visiting the Library on their own must be mindful of the time and must return to class in a timely manner. The Library and Library Aide will generally try to gently remind students, especially young students. However, it is still the responsibility of each student to get to class on time.
