Our mission at the Grove Learning Resource Center is to share great books with students and help them become fluent, enthusiastic readers of stories and informational texts. We enthusiastically support classroom teachers in their curriculum and classroom activities through close collaboration, co-teaching and support, making the LRC an extension of the classroom. Our flexible library schedule allows students to visit the library whenever they need to exchange books, conduct research, collaborate, and create.

Mrs. Huitrón, Mrs. Kontek, Mrs. Luhan, and Mrs. Putz are here to serve you!
