Media Center Mission

Our mission is to ensure success for every student in their use of information and technology through collaboration with classroom teachers, in support of the curriculum and excellence in teaching. 

Media Center Vision

The media center is a welcoming environment for all students. We strive to foster a strong understanding of the research skills and technology that are essential as members of a global society.  We hope to inspire a lifetime love of reading by connecting each child with materials that are relevant to his/her life. It is our goal to provide a wide variety of resources and instruction to each member of the school community, including students, parents, and staff.

Student Checkout

Students also come to the Media center once a week for assigned class times and research projects. Student materials are checked out for a two week lending period. Students in grades Kindergarten and 1st may check out one book, while 2nd-5th grades may check out two books. If a student has an overdue book, that student may not check out any other items until the overdue item is returned. If a book is lost or damaged, the student is required to pay for it before s/he can check out any other items. If your child has lost a book, please contact Mrs. Cramer at or Mrs. Cohen at .
