Celebrate Literacy Week 2015: Reading Accelerates Success
The week of January 26th- 30th 2015
This year’s theme is “Reading Accelerates Success.” With the support of our educational partners, we hope to boost the enthusiasm of students across Florida concerning literacy and reading. Our theme "Reading Accelerates Success" encourages our students to connect literacy with all kinds of careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). 
This year we are providing a unique experience to students, in the Media Center, that will help to solidify the importance of literacy and its tie to STEM in the minds of our students.
The Media Center will be offering the following hands-on activities:
K’nex – construction set
K’nex – bridge building
Mega Marble Run 
Maze Mega Stunt Set Marble Run
​Pandabo – balancing game
Jenga – build and balance game
Reading Station – books relating to STEM professions

Sign-up for a time slot with Mrs. Pope (two classes per period maximum).  Join us in the Media Center
for an exciting, mind boggling challenge using hands-on activities!!

Hope to see you the week of Jan. 26th -30th!!
