Whitaker Battle of the Books team   


Whitaker Media Center   
Welcome!  The media center is where students learn research skills and enjoy reading activities that support the classroom curriculum.  Ms. Weeks and Ms. Herman are excited about the 2014-2015 school year!  Below are some basic facts on how the media center operates: 
 
  • Each class visits the media center once a week.
  • All students check out two books.  Students can exchange a book anytime, not just during their media class time.
  • Books are due in one week and can be renewed.  
  • There are no late fines.  If a book is lost or damaged beyond repair, it must be paid for.  If it is found, you will get a refund.
  • Parents may check out books in their name and are always welcome in the media center.
