Welcome to the Media Center!
This is the greatest, most magical place on Earth! Well, at least close to it. But hey, it can be whatever you want it to be because it's the place you can go in your mind to wherever you want to go, and be whomever you'd like to be. Just come in and see!

I can't wait to see you in the library!
-Mrs. Wright, your Media Specialist

 For Parents (Ideas to keep your student engaged!)


  • The first resource on the list is a site called Education World. This site offers twenty-five activities that will keep children actively engaged while teaching them to explore the world around them and be creative. If you and your child like visiting or learning about National Parks, there is even a site on Education World that will help your child become a “Web Ranger.” How fun! There are other great activities on this site from building paper airplanes to making ice cream in a Ziplock bag. What would be great is if you find a local U-Pick farm and pick your own fresh berries to top your ice cream. Yum! Your child is sure to be filled with many days of boredom beating entertainment with this site.

  • Another great site that I recommend is, Edutopia. Edutopia offers forty-eight activities on its site, and students may participate in various fun, but thought-provoking activities such as the “Magic Tree House,” based on the Magic Tree House book series. Your child will go on great adventures and missions that challenge them to think. Edutopia also links to an amazing site where children can play a “Virtual Piano.” Talk about being well-rounded at the end of the summer!

  • PBS Kids offers loads of games and learning activities. 

  • The Master's in Data Science website is a great resource for STEM from the elementary to high school levels. The links from this site that I can recommend are: Science Games & Apps, Cool STEM websites, and PBS kids links for your child's grade level.  For high and middle schoolers, the DC STEM Network, also offers many awesome resources and tools to help them explore their STEM curiosities.

  • A fun activity that many children could easily engage in, but think it’s only for adults is writing and publishing a book. Amazon Kindle Direct makes it really simple to publish, sell, and promote your child's book online, and Fiverr is a great place to find an editor and someone to create a cover and illustrations. Fiverr is not a free service, but your child is worth the small investment it takes to publish their first book!

  • Freerice.com is a fun vocabulary game with a wonderful humanitarian cause. For every correct answer, Freerice.com donates 10 grains of rice to the World Food Programme to help end hunger. I’ve been playing this game for many years, and I teach as many students as I can about it because it’s a great learning opportunity that helps people. You just can’t beat that!

  • If you have a bookworm at your house, I highly suggest finding out who the book award nominees are in your state, and checking out or purchasing those books from your public library.  Because I’m in Georgia, I will provide you with the Georgia Book Award Nominee list. Even if you don't live in Georgia, these are just some really spectacular books to read anyway. I think you’ll enjoy them just as much as your kiddo.
