Dr. Natasha K. May, Media Specialist
Welcome to the Media Center's webpage! This year when your child comes to the Media Center they will reading, researching, and reading! Our mission is to enhance your children's reading fluency, comprehension,and vocabulary by exposing them to multiple forms of print. In addition to reading books, students will be enhancing skills taught in the classroom.
For the 2022-2023 school year, students will be able to download digital books via phone or iPad to read at home. This year's Library theme is Get in the Game... READ! It does not matter whether your child is a fan of video games, football, basketball, soccer, or baseball. I want them to get into the READing game. The game plan is to encourage your child to read at least 15 minutes a day. This will maximize their success in and out of the classroom. I will post updates throughout the school year of the amazing things that are happening in the Library.

A good library will never be too neat, or too dusty, because somebody will always be in it, taking books off the shelves and staying up late reading them.
