The primary objective of each school’s media center is to implement, enrich, and support the educational program of the school. The media center shall provide a wide range of educational media materials on all levels of difficulty with a diversity of appeal and the representation of different points of view.
Our mission is to inspire a passion for knowledge, an appreciation for knowledge, and a love of reading. We will create a safe, nurturing environment in which students will acquire the literacy skills necessary for success in the 21st century.
The purpose of the SSYRA Program is to encourage students to read independently for personal satisfaction based on interest rather than just reading level. Students are encouraged to read books that are above, on, and below their tested reading level in order to improve their reading fluency and have a greater exposure to literature.
At Old Kings Elementary, we celebrate readers that read books from the SSYRA list. In grades 3–5, if a student reads five or more books from their list and passes a Reading Counts test, they will receive a pizza party. If a student reads all 15 books and passes the Reading Counts test, they will receive a special lunch with the Media Specialist, Media Aide, and an administrator.
