“Wherever I am, if I’ve got a book with me, I have a place I can go and be happy.”
-- J.K. Rowling
Welcome to Eastside Elementary’s media center, a place full of books just waiting to make you and your family happy!
Our media center is open each morning at 7:15 a.m. and ready to welcome students. We have classes, schedule checkouts for homerooms and encourage individual students to come and get new books to read each day. The school’s Parent Resource Room is also in the media center with English and Spanish materials available for our families. Games, flashcards, and bilingual books are always ready for checkout in the Parent Resource Room.
Twice a year we schedule book fairs in the media center and we invite family members to visit the book fair with their students. We also schedule special events like our holiday movie before the break and our Bridge Summer Reading Program in June.
Ms. Jones and Mrs. Gentry love teaching and learning from our students and meeting our families. Like J.K. Rowling says, books make us happy; but so does finding the perfect book for each student each day.
