Primary Center Media Center
Welcome to the Primary Media Center Where We Are "Riding The Waves To Great Books"
May 13th is our Pancake Breakfast to celebrate each child making their goal of 15 points for kindergarteners and 25 points for first graders at 80% comprehension. You can check your child's progress for this goal on the HomeConnect link below.
We did it!! Our kindergarten and first grade students have earned an amazing 20,000 plus points. We encourage everyone to keep on reading to see just how high we can go this year. We have earned a Field Day on May 15th! For more information on this event see the pdf file below.
Scholastic Book Fair
Our Book fair was a huge success! Thank you to all our volunteers for making this such a successful event. Come in to see all the new books and materials we will be able to purchase because of your generosity.
100 Point Party
We had eighty six students at the Primary Center to qualify for the 100 point party this year. We are excited to celebrate with all of them on Tuesday, May 12th in the media center. Each child has received their invitation to the party. If you have any questions please contact me at Karen.Bowersox@tvcs.org.

AR Book Find
A valuable tool to help figure out if a book is AR is www.arbookfind.com. www.arbookfind.com Please note: not all books and quizzes listed on this site are available at our media center for testing.
Parent PI Books
The Elementary Media Centers offer the following books that you may read and take AR tests on for infomational hours. I recommend you read them earlier in the year as they can be hard to find the closer we get to May! Please note: you must have a student enrolled in the Elementary School to read and test on these books for PI time. The media centers at the Middle and High Schools have books for parents of their students.
