Media Hours & Check Out Policy
Monday through Friday 7:30 am - 2:30 pm
Students in kindergarten and first grade may check out one book.
Students in grades 2-5 may check out two books, if they do not already have overdue or damaged books. Books may be checked out for a period of two weeks and may be renewed once.
Students must pay for any lost or damaged library books before they can check out another book. Students or parents may pay for lost or damaged items in the media center during regular school hours or send payment through their child's teacher.
Parents may also check out books from the media center, once they have established a parent account. Up to five books may be checked out for a period of one week. Please inquire at the check-out desk.
Please do everything you can to help your child take good care of his or her library books. Parents will be responsible for lost or damaged books that are checked out from the media center by their children or themselves. You can help:1. Remind your child to keep books separated from water bottles.2. Help keep books in a safe place away from small children and pets.3. When moving residence, place library books in your child's backpack so they won't get lost.
Students accompanied by an adult may take RC tests 7:30 am - 7:50 am, every morning before school, except Wednesday.
During the school year, students will have the opportunity to participate in the Reading Counts program. Reading Counts is an individual, independent reading incentive program designed to promote student reading. Children select books from the media center, public library, or their home library. After reading a book, the student takes a web-based re-call and comprehension test on a computer in the classroom or the media center in order to earn points. These points enable children to both track their reading progress and to receive positive recognition for their efforts.
Students at Indian River Elementary can accumulate points to reach 6 different levels of honor: 25. 50, 75. 100, 150, 200.Student achievement is recognized at each main level and at 100 point milestones thereafter
There are now over 40,000 Reading Counts tests available to students in Volusia County Schools.
We, the Indian River faculty, staff, students and parents, respectfully encourage each other to excel with enthusiasm, excitement, and energy, as we responsibly explore the world around us.
