Mission Statement:

The mission of our Library Media Center is to provide a place that encourages reading as well as empowering our students to become effective users of ideas, information and technology.

 

FAMILY LITERACY AFTERNOON EACH WEDNESDAY

Our Media Center is open each Wednesday from 2:30 - 6:00 p.m. Families are encouraged to come to the Media Center to read and check out books with their children. Computers are also available for use during the extended hours for students to access SuccessMaker and additional software resources available to Dade County Public School students. Students can also access Accelerated Reader quizzes for the books they have read.

We look forward to seeing many of our students and their families each Wednesday.

 

ACCELERATED READER PROGRAM

Click on the blue tab at the top of the page for a list of quizzes available at our school.

The Accelerated Reader Program (A.R). is a computerized reading program that tests and monitors students' reading comprehension at their independent level.  Our school owns over 13,000 quizzes for books in our library collection.  Students select, read and take a computer test at school. They accumulate reading points by scoring 70% or better.   Medals are awarded to students meeting their goals at the end of the school year as well as trophies for students at each grade level that accumulate the most points.  Additionally, at the end of each marking period the classes with  the most points will display a grand trophy in their classrooms.  Classes meeting their goals will also recive a pizza party. For more information please contact your child's teacher.

 

Students are able to use several educational software programs at home. These programs include i-Ready for both reading and math, Reflex Math for learning math facts, and MyOn Reader for practice in fluency and comprehension. Links to these programs are located in the menu bar above.
