Welcome to the Primary Media Center Where We Are "Riding The Waves To Great Books"
AR Point Update
As of October 13th the Primary Center is at 5,797.9 AR points! Our goal for this year is 20,000 points! If our building achieves this goal, they will earn a special event at the end of the year!
October 31 will be our annual Book-O-Ween parade. Students, faculty and staff will dress as their favorite book character and have a parade around the school. More details will be coming home soon about this exciting event!

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.
