Welcome to the Lindsey Elementary School Media Center!

Our media center is open from 7:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. daily! Our media center mission is to encourage students, faculty and parents to become successful lifelong learners through reading. We show students how to be active and responsible learners by teaching them how to use technology and books of all kinds most effectively.

Students are welcomed into the media center for book check-out, and research throughout the day with permission from their teacher. Students in grades K-1st  may check out one book each week while students in 2nd-5th grades may check out 2 books each week. We do not charge overdue fines; however, students are unable to check out new books until all overdue books are returned. In the case of lost or damaged books, parents may choose to bring in a replacement book or simply pay for the lost or damaged item. Reference books are reserved for use in the media center so they will always be accessible to students, teachers, and staff members.

Our collection offers over 12,000 books, hundreds of e-books and many other materials for our staff and students to utilize throughout the year. Students are instructed in the safe and effective use of on-line sources, a variety of reference books and on-line reference sources.  Students enjoy the media center for quiet reading time, and we also have storytime for the lower grades each week.  The skills students learn will follow them throughout their lives and help them become effective users of various types of information.

 

 

We LOVE Reading Counts at Lindsey!  

Scholastic Reading Counts! is based on years of reading research which shows that students who read more achieve more. Scholastic Reading Counts gets your students reading on their own and provides an easy way to manage and assess their independent reading.  Students read books and then take on-line quizzes which measure their comprehension mastery. Students are awarded points for every quiz they pass. When reading goals are met, students are rewarded! 

Most of the books your child reads will have a Reading Counts quiz.  So, encourage them to read and take quizzes at school! 

You may check to see if the book your child is reading has a quiz by clicking the Reading Counts Book Expert link below.  Then you can search by the title of the book or the author's name.  HAPPY READING!!

Box Tops For Education 

Our media center receives 10 cents for every box top that we collect. All of those dimes add up to new supplies for our students. Save your box tops and send them  to school with your child. For more information on the box top program and to see a list of products that have box tops you can visit:

Recycle Empty Printer Cartridges

and old Cell Phones

Unsure of what to do with your empty printer cartridges and old cell phones? Well, send them to the media center of course. We box them up and send them to the Funding Factory. In turn, they give us credit to buy equipment and supplies we need for all grade levels.
