Welcome to the Primary Media Center Where We Are "Riding The Waves To Great Books"


                               Winter Break Reader Wall of Fame

This winter break, we want to you read!   Any student who takes an AR test on Wednesday, January 7 (the first day back from winter break), and scores 80% or higher will join the Winter Break Wall of Fame!!!  Students who make it to the Winter Break Reader Wall of Fame, will get their name up on the wall, and will receive a small prize!!   Happy Reading!  We are looking forward to seeing how many students join the Winter Break Reader Wall of Fame!!!


                                Mid-Year AR Goals Dress Down Day

             We have exciting news in the media center! This year we have set 15 points as your child’s total Kg. AR goal for the year and we have set 25 points as your child’s total First Grade AR goal for the year.  To recognize all those that have made it half way there with 80% comprehension we are sponsoring a dress down day on January 9th. Your child will receive an invitation for this special event if they have reached this mid-point goal.  The weather man says it is going to be a cold one this Friday so dress appropriately for the weather and tennis shoes are always required for P.E.

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 infomational hours.  I recommend  you read them earlier in the year as they can be hard to find the closer we get to May!  The new titles are listed first!
