Happenings in the PES Media Center - May 2015

This Month in the Media Center...

Students will be conducting genre tastings in media class.

  • Grades K-2 will focus on fiction and non-fiction.
  • Grades 3-5 will focus on different genres of fiction (mystery, historical fiction, science fiction, etc.)
  • If you have a specific genre you would like your students to explore please let me know!

The LAST day to check out books will be May 12! After this date I will be requesting ALL books to be returned to the media center by May 22. I will be doing a full inventory of the media center after the Book Fair is packed up.


Friday, May 15th, 8am to Thursday, May 21st, 4pm
