TVCS Elementary Media Centers Update
We have exciting news from the media centers! We will be starting our library orientations very soon, and once those are complete we will be starting to check out library books to the students. Each of the elementary buildings have their own media center orientation schedule, so each building’s media center is going to begin library book check out on a different date. If you have children in more than one of the elementary buildings, they will begin bringing home library books at different times. The dates that the media centers will begin checking out books are:
4th & 5th Grade Center: Wednesday, August 20
Intermediate Center: Thursday, August 21
Primary Center: Monday, August 25
Thank you for your understanding as we work hard to get the media centers ready to check out books to our students!!!!

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. Look for new titles in the coming weeks.
