Mission Statement

    The mission of the Maplewood Elementary Media program is to ensure that the students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This is accomplished by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats; by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas; and by working with other teachers to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students.
