The mission of the Stoddert Information Literacy Program is to equip our students with life-long learning skills, to develop their imagination allowing them to become critical thinkers and effective users of information in all formats and mediums.
Stoddert Literacy and Info-Lab:
We are so proud to have a robust library for all of Stoddert’s grade levels. The library and computer lab are located at the top of the main stairs on the second floor of the main building. Each student visits the library and computer lab at least once a week. Please ask your student’s teacher to find out when he or she has information literary. The school’s librarian is Mr. Kevin Lee at (202) 671-6031 and the technology coordinator is Ms. Terri Thompson.
In the Stoddert library, we do not charge for fines or late books. However, we do charge for book damages. If the book is lost, we charge to replace the book.
Online Card Catalog:
All students are able to log into the online card catalog by going to: dcps.follettdestiny.com
Scroll down to Stoddert ES and click. Then, click on Catalog in the upper left hand corner. Students may log into the system using their Student ID # for the username and their birthdate (mmddyy) as their password. Under Catalog, in Webpath Express, our students will find appropriate and excellent websites to use for their research.
Outside Of School:
Parents and guardians, with their children, are welcome to check out books before school at 8:00 a.m. and after school. Most importantly, we ask each household to set aside at least 20 to 30 minutes for parents/guardians to read to or with their children each day.
Parents and guardians are asked to please help the school encourage good library habits at home in these areas:
- How to handle books carefully;
- How to keep books in a safe place;
- How to return books to the library on time.
