WELCOME OLR FAMILIES!
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! The Media Center is a warm and inviting place that provides students a quite and peaceful atmosphere to study, read, complete tests and Accelerated Reader quizzes, etc. Located in the Media Center are iPads, chromebooks, a touchscreen computer for student use, a scanner to check out books electronically and six tables, allowing enough room for a teacher to conduct class. Students in grades K-5 visit the library weekly during a scheduled half an hour time slot, while students in grades 6-8 visit the library on an “as need basis” for research and learning purposes. The 3 year and Pre-K students also visit each week to listen to a wonderful story or two.
My role is to coordinate and communicate with the principal and teachers to ensure that each student has the necessary resources needed to be academically successful. The goal each school year is to instill a love for reading in each and every student . . . one that will last not just through their academic years, but throughout their lives. It has been a fun and rewarding journey. I look forward to continuing that journey to motivate all students and teach them what an important part reading plays in their academics.
