Learning Commons


The G.S. Lakie Learning Commons are open from 8:15 a.m. - 3:45 p.m. Monday - Thursday.  Students are welcome to use the space for reading, research, group collaborative work, games and study.  The G.S. Lakie Learning Commons has a terrific space and an amazing library collection, and Mrs. Fischbuch is always ready to hear about new titles that student would like to see added to the collection, as well as other ways we can improve the dynamics of the learning commons.  In addition to the extensive hard copy collection of books that we have in our learning commons, there is also a large collection of ebooks that can be accessed by logging into Destiny and then going to the Follett Shelf tab.

The learning commons at G.S. Lakie also offers an extensive array of technology that students can check out to help them with projects, research, multimedia applications.  Laptops, IPads, Ipods, Digital Cameras, and other items can all be accessed through the learning commons.

We encourage students looking for a place to work and collaborate to come and use the "Cafe" within our learning commons.  The cafe has couches, sitting booths, and a big screen computer monitor that are all designed to allow students to work comfortably.
