Parents may also check out books from the media center. Up to five books may be checked out for a period of one week.
Please do everything you can to help your children take good care of the books they check out and to return them on time. Parents are responsible for lost or damaged books their children check out from the media center.

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 the books, they take web-based comprehension tests 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 five different levels of honor. The student's achievement is recognized at each level.
There are now over 40,000 Reading Counts tests available to students in Volusia County Schools.
3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Students
Our Media Center has all 15 of the Sunshine State Young Readers Awards picks for 2015-2016. Students can earn an Ice Cream Party invitation just for reading and passing RC tests for three books! This year we also have Charm Necklaces with a special charm for each book. Collecting the charms is a great way for students to be reminded of their reading success!
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.
