Media Center News

The media center is up and running and we have been busy checking out books to the students!!!   Over the next couple of weeks a few items will be coming home.  The first item is Summer Reading recognition. We are working hard and finalizing who made their summer reading goal and getting the special recognition ready to hand out!  For parents, we will be sending home the AR Home Connect log in information so you can keep track of your child's AR progress from your home computer, tablet or smart phone!  I look forward to sharing more information about this Thursday, August 4 at Open House.

Happy Reading to All!!!
