Welcome To Dr. Probe's Learning Commons!
Welcome to the Learning Commons. We are very excited to have our students back, accessing all the wonderful learning materials and books available at Dr. Probe. We are also excited to continue to see our Makerspace grow and for students to develop their skills as "makers" both in the Learning Commons and in the classroom.
Soar Into Reading With SORA!!
We are so excited to introduce another FREE reading service to our Dr. Probe families - SORA!
The collection of titles in Sora is an extension of Dr. Probe's physical library, only it’s in an app with 24/7 access to e-books and audiobooks. It’s convenient for students to check out titles at home, on the weekends or during school breaks with no worry about misplacing a book or running up late fees – these digital titles automatically return at the end of the lending period!
