A glimpse at the happenings in your local Media Center.

Resource Spotlight

Carolina Navigators

This free resource allows NC Educators the opportunity to borrow "Culture Kits" FREE of charge for classroom use. They are organized by country and theme and include lesson plan ideas that relate directly to the curriculum for K-12 standards. I would be happy to help with this resource if you are interested!

GCS Reads 20

Let's log those minutes!

Guilford County Schools has an on-going reading initiative to encourage students to read at least 20 minutes a day. Each month Media Specialists take logged minutes and submit to GCS Media Services monthly.


The deadline for April's minutes is next Monday, May 11th. I would love to have Eastern included this month! (feel free to have students estimate their reading minutes for April!)


Here are ways students/teachers can submit minutes:


  1. Following the QR code on posters around the Media Center to access the online form directly
  2. Following this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1LmUG8YJw9-ZYrdJxifresRHS9ukeJOAOz0HSZDAaR9Y/viewform
  3. Picking up a printed form from the Media Center and returning by Friday, May 8th
  4. Teachers may e-mail classroom minutes directly to me!
