Dr. Yvonne S. Minor Ragan Library

The shut-down Kensington Public Library next door to Westminster was purchased with the support of M&T Bank. The building was upgraded and converted into a thriving school library and recently named after former principal, Dr. YvonneS. Minor-Ragan.  Westminster's library is a learner oriented and designed environment with a goal to provide students,staff, as well as the surrounding community, with equitable access to print and electronic materials. Students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade visit the library for library curriculum, technology projects, research, and reading materials, presented by a certified library media specialist. Westminster's materials collection includes new and classic texts from all genres; ensuring students have access to relevant and engaging material. The library is a place of education as well as enjoyment.

Westminster strives to allow students to become information literate with technology resources. We provide access to technology of various types in our library; it has become a virtual classroom. Students use the upgraded computer resource lab to complete research and assignments. Lessons for library class are often presented on a Promethean interactive whiteboard. This allows the students to become engaged with and contribute to the lessons. library media specialist teacher page offers links to electronic databases, research and reference sites, as well as author and book interactive programs.

The Westminster Community Charter School Counseling department's mission is to educate all students in academic, career, and social competencies which will enhance student achievement and advance them in becoming responsible members of society. The counselors here at Westminster Community Charter School, Ms. Courtney Chamberlain and Ms. Mindy Pilato implement the American School Counselor's Association National Model of School Counseling. This approach consists of a system of elements that are interrelated and interdependent.

The school counseling program reaches every student and focuses on the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed for successful academic achievement, career development, and personal/social growth. The counselor's time is spent in a way that maximizes the benefits that every student is able to receive from the program. Most importantly, the school counseling program is comprehensive in scope, preventative in design, and developmental in nature.
