The Media Center is open from 7:30 AM until 2:30 PM every day except on Wednesday, when we are open until 3:30 PM. Our collection of reading materials was developed with the goal of creating lifelong readers and learners. In addition, books are specifically chosen to reinforce the high standards of the school’s curriculum and educational goals, and appropriately reflect the grade/reading level of the students at the Main Campus and Jackson Primary.
Beyond its day-to-day agenda, the Media Center/Library offers a variety of special events throughout the year from book readings on site (with many local authors!), to book fairs partnered with Scholastic that help raise money for facility improvements.
The Media Center is also home to the acclaimed Accelerated Reader (AR) program used to supplement each student’s reading efforts in-class and at home. This computer-based management program helps track a child’s reading by enabling him/her to take short comprehension quizzes after completing a book. Besides making essential reading practice more effective for every student, AR helps foster a love of reading and learning, and challenges all participants to meet specific goals throughout the year.
