4th & 5th Grade Media Center
Welcome to the 4th & 5th Grade Media Center where our goal is to inspire the love of reading!!!
Friday, March 6, 2015
We are celebrating Read Across America, which is a day that recognizes the accomplishments of one of the greatest children’s authors of all time-Dr. Seuss on Friday, March 6th. All of the VCS Elementary buildings are going to honor Dr. Seuss and all of the great books he has written with a Mixed-Up Friday! This means, that you may wear your clothes all mixed up! Suggestions are inside out, backwards, two different socks/shoes (both shoes need to be athletic shoes!). This is a dress down day, however, clothes must be school appropriate, including, but not limited to: any shorts must be fingertip length, no spaghetti straps, no pajamas, and shoes must be athletic shoes for PE. If you have any questions, please contact one of the Elementary Media Specialists:
Megan Lyon- email@example.com (4th & 5th Grade Center and Intermediate Center)
Karen Bowersox- firstname.lastname@example.org (Primary Center and Intermediate Center)
We are looking forward to a fun filled Mixed Up Friday!!!
Megan Lyon and Karen Bowersox, Media Specialists

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.
