    Mission:

    Together we inspire a love of learning, empowering all students with the courage, confidence, creativity and compassion to make their unique contribution in a diverse and dynamic world. 

    Vision Statement:

    The MOSAIC Initiative includes a first-class collection of diverse books that distinctly represents our diverse school community.  These books will help develop a collaborative culture that enriches our entire school community and deepens our student’s connections to school. The overall goal of this initiative is that all of our Woodland District 50 students see themselves represented in our library collection. We want our diverse collection of books to be windows, mirrors, sliding glass doors, stepping stones, springboards, anchors, escape hatches, flying carpets and warm blankets.

    The MOSAIC Initiative began at Woodland Middle School in the fall of 2021. The program will soon be expanded to include all of our Woodland District 50 libraries.
