4th & 5th Grade Media Center
Welcome to the 4th & 5th Grade Media Center where our goal is to inspire the love of reading!!!
Media Center News
Look below for our first newsletter of the school year full of information about the media center and a list of recommended books to help your student "Ride the Waves to Great Books!"! Look for a list with every news letter this year of books we recommend our students check out!!
This week a few things 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! We look forward to sharing more information about this Thursday, August 4 at Open House. We will begin handing out AR prizes for point clubs next week.

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.
