Welcome to the Gideon Pond Media Center website!
Media Center News

Our Celebration Book Club is off to a great start!  You can donate a book to our media center in celebration of a birthday, a good report card, a lost tooth, or any other special occasion!  Participating students choose a brand new book from a special selection, a donation sticker is placed inside the book, and the student gets to be the first one to check the book out. Just download the form below and send it in to school (with payment).  
Thank you to all the families who have already donated a book this year.  Your generosity is appreciated!

Each classroom visits the media center once a week. Students in kindergarten may check out one book; students in first and second grade may check out two books; and students in grades 3-5 may check out three books. 
Parents, please help your children take good care of our books and return or renew them each week.

"The more you read, the more things you will know, the more that you learn, the more places you'll go."

Gideon Pond students in grades 3-5 participate in the Accelerated Reader program.  Quizzes can only be taken at school, but you can use the AR Bookfinder website to see if there is a quiz for a particular book and find out its level.  There is also lots of information for parents on Renaissance Learning's parent resource page.  Here are links to both sites:
