Vision Statement
Stonewall Middle School is a center of learning where the whole school community collaboratively provides an inspiring, creative, and rigorous International Baccalaureate curriculum. This is accomplished in a safe environment that promotes student-centered learning, positive and respectful social interactions, and global awareness. . . one child at a time.
Stonewall Middle School is currently a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) School. Each student is provided an email account to communicate with their teachers and other students.   For more information on this, the PWCS provided Microsoft account also created for students (including 5 free Microsoft Office 365 licenses), click HERE

         We wish to provide a learning environment that encourages inquiry, stimulates intellectual curiosity, encourages reading for pleasure, and develops a diverse interest for the enjoyment of life-long learning.  Additionally, the Media Center provides and promotes instruction to prepare students to become independent users of libraries and information resources. Our objective is to help students develop information literacy by:
            * ensuring that students can effectively locate, comprehend, analyze, question, communicate ideas
               and information in the pursuit of independence and life-long learning.
            * encourage literary and cultural appreciation
            * nurture creativity
            * promote enjoyment of reading, viewing, and listening.


     It is equally important to support teachers and faculty with resources to enhance their curriculum and meet their instructional needs; thus, providing a climate that ensures teaching partnerships to enhance the school's academic achievement.





 
LIBRARY SCHEDULE:

* Language Arts teachers bring students to the library to check out books once every three weeks.
* Teachers schedule classes for research and additional information activities on an as-needed basis.
* Students may visit the library between classes without a pass as long as they use their time wisely and are not late  
   to their next class (no tardy passes are given).
* Students may obtain a pass to visit the library at any time throughout the day.
*Students may use the bicycles and treadmills to build reading muscle by reading while on our exercise equipment. Passes for use of the equipment are given by teachers encouraging and/or rewarding students for building reading muscle.
