Maxine Lower School Media Center
Lower school students attend enrichment weekly in the media center to learn library skills and other lessons to enhance classroom instruction. Our lower school media specialist works closely with classroom teachers to plan ways to enhance upcoming units as well as ways to incorporate research and literature into their work in all subject areas. Students are also able to self-select and check out books of personal interest and/or resources that will enable them to complete assignments or acquire a more complete understanding of a concept covered in the classroom.
The Reading Knights program is an incentive program to encourage reading and instill a lifelong love of books in our lower school students. The program aligns with the reading units in each grade level and is divided into quarters. Each quarter students will read a certain number of books and record them on their Reading Knights' log. Students will be recognized at the end of each quarter in their media class for meeting their quarter goal. Students who meet their goal all four quarters will be recognized in a special end-of-year chapel, with special recognition for students who have participated throughout their entire lower school experience.
