We service over 700 patrons through regularly scheduled media classes, informal research groups, in-services to school community members, as well as one on one instruction. Currently we are teaching 35 classes of students in grades Pre-K-5th grade each week and have a weekly circulation of over 1200 books. Our collection is chosen with care to reflect the needs of all students and staff at Manchester. The media center currently contains 19,512 titles.
The media center is open each morning between the hours of 8:50-9:15 and each afternoon between the hours of 3:45-4:15 for independent student check-out. During media classes, Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Graders check out one book each week. Second graders check out two books each week. Third graders check out two books every other week during the first two quarters and switch to three books every other week during the last two quarters. Fourth and Fifth graders check out three books every other week. Extra books may be checked out for research purposes at any time. We also have 16 search stations for catalog access and Internet access available for student and staff use.
Our media program is here to encourage all students to become life-long readers, thinkers, and learners. We do that through collaboration, providing quality resources, and teaching the effective and responsible use of technology and information. We do this in partnership with all members of our school community.
Manchester Elementary's media program works together with the school community in order to:
- Maintain a diverse collection of resources that pertain to curriculum needs, personal interests, culture, etc.
- Provide support in order to effectively use a variety of technologies throughout the school.
- Collaborate with staff members in order to design an instructional program that correlates with the school's curriculum.
- Collaborate with staff members to create lessons and units that promote the development of effective instructional and technology resources.
- Strive for continuous improvement while focusing on increasing student achievement and rigor.
- Respect, inspire, and support all members of our learning community.
- Create and support strong connections between home, school, and community.
- Provide the foundation for our students to become responsible citizens within the community, country and world.
