"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.

Teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime."

Our Goal in our Bailey Middle School Media Center is to teach our students how to find vital information, document it, and then submit it.  Learning these skills will help them achieve their academic goals. We believe that teaching our students  the skills of using interactive websites will give them the edge in this present day of advancing technology.

The Library Media Center has received many new selections
of literature and it is our hope that our 

"Bailey Readers Become
Great Leaders."

To serve as a catalyst to position 21st century readiness at the center of US K12 education by building collaborative partnerships among education, business, community and government leaders.

Every child in the U.S. needs 21st century knowledge and skills to succeed as effective citizens, workers and leaders. This can be accomplished by fusing the three Rs and four Cs. 
There is a profound gap between the knowledge and skills most students learn in school and the knowledge and skills they need in typical 21st century communities and workplaces.
To successfully face rigorous higher education coursework, career challenges and a globally competitive workforce, U.S. schools must align classroom environments with real world environments by fusing the three Rs and four Cs:
qThe three Rs include: English, reading or language arts; mathematics; science; foreign languages; civics; government; economics; arts; history; and geography. 
qThe four Cs include: critical thinking and problem solving; communication, collaboration; and creativity and innovation. As the three Rs serves as an umbrella for other subjects, the four Cs do for other skills.
