• Welcome to Northwest Middle School Media Center!

    Our Media Center is open every school day from 8:00 AM until 3:30 PM for student access during the school day. Students may come to the Media Center with a pass from their classroom teacher anytime during these hours. 

    We use a flexible schedule in the Media Center. Classes are scheduled to come for circulation and instruction through any of their classroom teachers. ELA teachers work closely with Mrs. Stringer to schedule time for students to receive instruction and access to materials needed for classroom research reading and also for self selection for independent reading.

    Students must read at least 600 minutes between June 8 and August 25 to earn a ticket to a fall Kersey Valley attraction.

    Reading minutes must be logged in Beanstack to be eligible for a prize. Students who cannot record their minutes over Summer Break can enter them in Beanstack when they return to school. To count toward the challenge, minutes will need to be dated during Summer Break.
