Learning Commons

What is a Learning Commons?

learning commons, formerly known as the school library, is a shared learning space that is both physical and virtual. Like libraries, the learning commons supports a student-centered approach by providing quality resources and flexible space for instruction, social and collaborative learning, production and presentation.

Research shows that students who have access to quality school library services, whatever name it goes by, are more likely to exhibit advanced student achievement and literacy development. Immanuel Christian Elementary School is committed to providing this for our students.

“Kid, you’ll move mountains! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way!”            -Dr. Suess

Welcome to another exciting year in the Learning Commons!   We are looking forward to a great year together even though it will look different!


Currently, our Learning Commons will be closed, but our Learning  Commons Facilitator, Mrs. Konynenbelt will be cohorting books and bringing them to the classrooms. Due to COVID-19 protocols, books will not be going home with students.
