Southside Elementary Media Center Mission Statement

The mission of Southside Elementary Media Center is to develop life-long readers and learners in a technologically rich, literary environment. Our goal is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. We believe that reading for pleasure will enrich your childs success in all academic areas, reading for pleasure also unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:

* Set the example. Let children see you read!

* Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.

*Allow your children to choose their own books to read. 


Philosophy of the Media Center

Southside Elementary Media program supports all areas of instruction, providing media resources and services to the staff and students. Resources are available in a variety of formats to meet various learning styles and interests. Flexible scheduling of the Media Center allows individual students or whole classes to use the Media Center when needed. This concept of media service contributes to the development of life-long learners and to individual self-fulfillment.





Students may come to the Media Center individually to check out books anytime during the day, but only one visit per day.

Students should bring their AR folder  library pass provided by their teacher when coming to check out books.

K - 5th grade students may check out one book.

Loan period is for one week. Chapter books may be kept for 2 weeks. At the end of that time the books may be renewed for 1 additional week.

3rd, 4th, & 5th graders are highly encouraged to read chapter books!

COUNTY-WIDE POLICY: Students may not check out books if they owe fines for lost or damaged books from our school or any other school in Grady County.

Do not try to repair damaged books. The media specialist will take care of this when the book is returned.

In the event that a book is damaged or lost, a fine will be assessed for the cost of replacing the book.
