There are six student computer terminals in the library that offer the automated card catalog, Internet access, and word-processing capabilities. Each class has a weekly session in the library.

The Strawberry School Library contains a collection of over 15,000 materials covering the curriculum appropriate for each grade level served at the school. Our collection catalog (OPAC) is fully automated and accessible via the Internet from any computer in the district and outside the district. The library and the computer lab share a building complex that allows integration of both programs giving library students access to the automated card catalogue, the Internet, and word-processing.
The weekly program is broken down into three essential parts. In the first part, specific genres or authors are highlighted and students are given a chance to recommend their own book choices. In the second part of class, students use searching skills to find books and research class projects. The last part of class is devoted to reading!
“Students will read if we give them the books, the time, and the enthusiastic encouragement to do so…To keep our students reading, we have to let them.” -Donalyn Miller, The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child

Strawberry Technology Lab
Fourth through sixth grade classes visit the computer lab weekly. The curriculum involves appropriate training so that students learn to use technology as a tool for research, writing, assessment, academic skills development and practice, communication, etc. Our "K to the 8 th" program teaches state technology standards within the other areas of the curriculum.
All students have access to computer technology and filtered Internet from each classroom, library, and computer lab. Strawberry has virtual field trip and video conferencing capability as well as wireless internet. See additional information about the District program below.
The district's comprehensive technology plan includes a specific emphasis on supporting reading instruction, including the use of Accelerated Reader in grades 1-6, and the Follett library system in both school libraries. While technology cannot replace a skilled teacher, the effective use of well-designed technology-based supports can provide additional resources for students, especially those potentially at-risk for reading failure. Currently, the district uses technology to: match student reading levels and text difficulty for supplemental reading using Accelerated Reader; provide assessments to monitor student progress; provide additional differentiated practice in skills, strategies, etc.; provide access to informational and research sources/websites for teacher and students; and enhance communication and promote the sharing of data, problem -solving, etc. among district professionals and parents.
