The media center is open each school morning around 7:20 and closes at 3:30.
Students may check out one book at a time unless they are doing research for a class assignment. Books are to be returned or renewed within a two-week period. Holidays are considered when due dates are assigned. Encyclopedias and reference books are loaned on an overnight basis so that they will be available during the school day.
We currently have 4,873 books of fiction, 4,751 nonfiction books, 1,207 biographies, 1,012 reference books, and magazines and periodicals. We are using Renaissance Place Online for students who desire to take an Accelerated Quiz on the books that they have read. Currently we have every quizz that Renaissance Learning has created.
We are excited about Destiny. It is an online catalog to locate books and material within the media center. Click on the Destiny link above to browse available media.
We have 64 student laptops as well as three computer labs that can serve 90 students. Students and teachers can access Web and networked based programs and resources in a classroom setting. We have Activeboards in every in academic environment as well as closed circuit television for video distribution within the building.
