Our Southwest Dragons are . . . READERS! Reading for pleasure increases vocabulary, boosts brain power, expands the imagination, and introduces new people, places, and points of view.

"Reading should not be presented as a chore or duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift." ~Kate DiCamillo, Author

LEARNERS! Technology changes so quickly that it’s important for students to "learn to learn" by practicing problem-solving skills.

"Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change." ~Stephen Hawking, Scientist

MAKERS! Makerspaces are hands-on activities that promote cooperation, motivate students to figure things out, and decrease stress.

"Tinkerers are thinkers." ~Robert and Michele Root Bernstein, Psychologists
