                                               School AR Point Update

As of April 6 , the Intermediate Center is at 29,954 points!   Our goal is 32,000 points, so keep on reading...we know you can make it!




April 12-18 is National Library Week.  To celebrate, we have teamed up with the Sumter County Public Library for a library card drive!  Students who do not have a public library card from Sumter County have an opportunity during the month of April to sign up for a card. The card gives students access to all the resources available at any public library in Sumter County. You do not have to be a resident of Sumter County to apply for the card. Parents can fill out the application and return to your child’s classroom teacher by April 17th or you can take the application to any Sumter County library.  Summer is fast approaching and our public library system is a great resource for you and your children to use during the summer months. The link to the Sumter County library is listed here if you want to check it out.  If you need another application it is located at the bottom of the page as a  PDF. 

Thank you,

Megan Lyon and Karen Bowersox

Parent PI Books

Good news!  We have added some new parenting books to our collection this school year!   The Elementary Media Centers offer the following books that you may read and take AR tests on for Informational hours.  I recommend  you read them earlier in the year as they can be hard to find the closer we get to May!  The new titles are listed first!
