Welcome Santanas!

Library Media Center

Welcome to Santiago Charter Middle School Library Media Center. Our mission is to promote information literacy for 21st learning by integrating education and technology. This section was created to provide students with a safe portal to the Internet and its resources. The resources give 24/7 access to instructional tools for a variety of educational endeavors. These resources were found for the students by the library staff, teachers and students in an effort of collaboration and team work to supply students with the most user friendly tools. To make a suggestion, e-mail the SCMS Librarian

Read Across America

Santanas celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday with ASB's and AVID's Taster's Tables. At each table, students were given an opportunity to listen to a book talk and view the vibrant presentations.

Students and administrators also visited elementary school campuses and read books to future Santanas.

We were given a special treat while at Jordan Elementary School. California State Superintendent Tony Thurmond paid a visit to the campus! What an exciting, wonderful day we had celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday!
