Media Center Links
The Mission of the Pine Street Elementary School Media Center is to promote life long love of reading. The Media Center is opened from 7:05 until 2:50 for student check out. Kindergarten and first grade may check out one book while grade 2-5 can check out two. Students with more than 100 Accelerated Reader points and students in the Reading Bowl may have out three books. Students are encouraged to have their name tags with them when they check out. All students can check out from 7:05 until 7:35 when announcements begin. Classes sign up every week, but students are allowed to keep their books for two weeks.
I am aligning book orders with the Common Core standards. If you have a recommendation, let me know! Students, parents and teachers can make recommendations!
