Thank you for "checking us out" at the Blue Jay Media Center. We are open daily from 7:40am to 3:20pm. Our Accelerated Reader theme is "Reading Rocks At OES." We have subscribed to AR Enterprise again this year, which gives us access to over 100,000 AR quizzes. We have over 5,000 AR books in our media center. The Wayne County Library also has a large collection of AR books. The AR quiz list is updated on a daily basis and can be accessed online. There are two websites listed below that can help you determine if a book has an AR quiz.
The Quiz Store can be accessed at http://www.renlearn.com/store
AR Book Finder can be accessed at http://www.arbookfind.com
AR Home Connect
You can access your child's AR record, from any computer, at any time, by going to https://global-zone05.renaissance-go.com/studentprogress/homeconnect?t=56519
Once you login to the website using your child's user name and password, you can see his Overall Progress, as well as the title and date of Last Quiz taken; you can view titles of books read, and look at each book to see individual quiz results. AND, there is a link to AR Book Finder that allows you to type in a title so as to determine the reading level and number of points of a particular book. This is helpful if you want to get books from the Wayne County Library or determine if books you have at home are AR books.
User name is his/her school number (4 or 5-digit number).
We are participating in the Box Tops for Education program again this year to earn money for our school. Students turn in the Box Tops to the media center. For every Box Top sheet turned in the student will get something out of the treasure basket.
We have two Book Fairs each year, one in the fall and one in the spring. Fair dates will be posted on the Wayne County Calendar.
