Strategic Library Partnerships

Laurie King

Librarians offer collaborative strategic planning to support content delivery in the classroom. Librarians build programs to address identified content gaps to reinforce what teachers are doing in the classroom.

Contact your local library to begin the discussion of how this partnership can support student discovery and growth.

 Stormwater Quality Annual Poster Contest

Laurie King

Get out your drawing supplies! The stormwater program hosts an annual poster contest for students in grades 3-6.

Did you know that stormwater runoff is one of the leading causes of pollution in the United States? This annual contest aims to increase awareness of stormwater pollution to students and allows them to spread their own pollution prevention message through art.

Winning posters will be featured in a calendar, be presented a certificate in front of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, and receive swag bags filled with prizes from sponsors. The contest runs year round, with entries being due in March. Check out our website to see past winning posters, and to learn more about this year's contest theme, rules, and prizes for the winning posters!

Clean Water, Students Can Help!

Laurie King

Let us come to you! The Stormwater program delivers FREE K-8 educational programs in the classroom. These one-hour programs first engage students by giving them background information on what stormwater is, and how stormwater becomes polluted. We then allow students to explore the topic through age-appropriate hands-on activities demonstrating stormwater pollution. We wrap up the program by discussing how we can work together to protect our drinking and recreational waters. 

We have 5 programs depending on the age group of the students that align with Arizona state standards.
