This Week At the Media Center...

Kindergarteners, first and second graders read the book "Enemy Pie" and learned about the parts of a book.

Third, fourth, and fifth graders learned about text features, including glossaries, indices, flow charts, Venn diagrams, italics, and table of contents.

Family Checkout

Families of students may visit the media center and check out books. Family passes will allow parents to check out 2 books for 7 days.

Families are allowed to visit the media center in the morning before school and after dismissal from 2:30-3:00 p.m and during certain school events, including Curriculum Night and parent-teacher conferences.

Accelerated Reader Book Finder

Students and parents can check AR points at home by using AR Book Finder.

This site allows students to look up purchased books or books checked out from the public library to see if students can take an AR test on the book and to check how many points the book is worth.
