At Redeemer, our Media Center houses our outstanding school Library, our Computer Lab and our creative & collaborative Makerspace! Mrs. Hascup, our Media Specialist and Director of Technology, loves sharing a love of Jesus, reading, technology, and creativity with our students!
Digital Citizenship is an essential part of our technology curriculum. Mrs. Hascup is committed to educating, protecting, and empowering Redeemer’s students to make responsible, respectful, and safe choices in today’s digital world. She takes pride in knowing that our students will have the tools and knowledge needed to become responsible digital citizens. Mrs. Hascup is our Media Specialist and assists students and staff with all of their library needs, she also manages our 1:1 implementation with iPads in grades 1-4 and Chromebooks in grades 5-8. She also teaches Programming, Coding and Photoshop to our middle school students.
With the widespread dependence upon computer-based technologies, Redeemer recognizes the importance of integrating technology into the educational experiences of its students. Technology, in its many forms, has become a powerful tool to enrich curriculum, expand instruction and excite learning.
At Redeemer, productivity, communication, research, and learning are dramatically enhanced through the appropriate use of technology both in the classrooms and in our computer lab. Redeemer teachers work side by side with our Media Specialist to ensure that educational technologies are successfully integrated into each student’s day.
Our Makerspace, based in our Media Center, is a creative space where students engage in electronics, circuitry, magnetics, engineering, robotics, and many other collaborative projects. Students with unique or shared interests, especially in computing or technology, gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge. In our Makerspace students create, invent, and learn!
Our Redeemer Lutheran Church and School Media Center would greatly appreciate your help! Students in grades K-8 visit our school library twice a week. It is the goal of Mrs. Hascup, our Media Specialist, to place two new books per student on our library shelves each year. With your help we can accomplish and hopefully even exceed this goal. If you would like to contribute to this effort here are three ways you can help.
1. Purchase a Barnes and Noble scrip gift card from Karen McCarthy in the church office and donate it to the school library.
2. Make a check or cash donation to the school library and drop it off at the school or church office.
3. Buy a birthday book in honor of your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, or even yourself! For $25 dollars we will place a “This book was donated in honor of ________” placket in the front cover of a new book. Then we will place the book in a place of honor in our library during the honoree’s birthday month!
At Redeemer we know that kids who read succeed! Should you have any questions, or desire to make a donation even greater then those listed above, please contact Donna Hascup@ email@example.com. We thank you in advance for your generous donations!
