Our students visit the Media Center as part of our Special Area Time rotation. During Media Center, Grades K-5 check out books on every third Friday. Books are due back in a week. Students will turn their books into their classroom teacher and may renew a book if they wish. The Media Center is also open on Monday and Thursday mornings from 8:40-8:55 for children wishing to return and/or check out a book. Students can also set up a time with their teacher and Mrs. Harrington, Media Clerk, to check out a book during the school day. Please encourage your child to be a reader!
Riverside Elementary uses the Scholastic Reading Counts program as just one way to motivate our students to read! Students read a book and then take a short quiz on the computer to test their comprehension. Students receive prizes according to the number of points they earn! We do not have a list of specific titles; however, more than 50,000 titles are on the Scholastic Reading Counts database for Greater Clark Schools.
