Hillview’s Media Specialist, Mrs. Valerie Munro is eager to help Hillview students develop a passion for reading! She is here to serve students and teachers by finding the resources they need to learn all they can.
The Media Center houses more than 12,600 fiction and non-fiction titles, periodicals and audio books. Our materials are easily accessed through our automated Opals circulation system, and Lexile and Accelerated Reader titles are identified by their special labels.
The Media Center is open daily for students during Library Lunch. It is a great time to find a cozy spot to read, use one of our Chrome Books, take an Accelerated Reader quiz or use the Maker Space!
We also offer Chess Club for third, fourth and fifth graders.
Fifth graders are invited to participate in the Battle of the Books program.
Each class in the school is scheduled for a class in the Media Center one day per week. Students use this time to learn information skills and technology.
With the support of our generous Home and School Association, we also offer many school-wide programs during the year such as author visits, The Poetry Cafe, Election Day, The Green Eggs and Ham Café during Read Across America Week, reading incentive programs, the annual Library Hall of Fame Contest and special nighttime literature celebrations like “Bedtime With Bookwormy”, “Narnia Night”, “Go Hog Wild For Reading” and many more! Mrs. Munro also coaches the Fifth Grade Battle of the Books program.
We have many opportunities to become involved in the Media Center program at Hillview. Please visit the links to see how you can help to encourage our students’ love of reading and learning by being a Library Volunteer, Accelerated Reader Volunteer or a member of the Hillview Bookworm Committee!
