4th & 5th Grade Media Center
Welcome to the 4th & 5th Grade Media Center where our goal is to inspire the love of reading!!!
The Villages Charter 4th & 5th Grade Center and Intermediate Center Media Centers will be open throughout the summer to provide students ample opportunity to check out books and take AR tests. Incoming 4th & 5th Grade students will check out books and test at the 4th & 5th Grade Center, while incoming K, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grade students will check out books and test at the Intermediate Center.
Media Center Summer Hours are as follows:
June 10, 2014-July 29, 2014
Tuesdays from 7:00 am-1:00 pm
Thursdays from 2:00 pm- 7:00 pm
Each grade level has a set amount of points as a goal for each student to earn this summer
The required points are as follows:
1st- 5 Points
2nd- 5 Points
Please note: Students must have an 80% comprehension average and the set number of points for their grade level in order to receive the special recognition at the beginning of the year.

Parent PI Books
Need some Informational PI Hours? Read a book! 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!
