Student Literacy and Media (SLAM) Showcase
Library Media Services is proud to introduce a new district program and event for the 2016-2017 school year. The Student Literacy and Media (SLAM) Showcase will be a celebration of reading and literacy through students’ artistic and digital expressions in response to quality literature from state reading award lists. Students at participating schools will have the opportunity to share their creativity at their schools first. Exemplary selections will go on to the District SLAM on March 22, 2017 at the Tampa Convention Center where those students will be recognized, attend an art and film festival of student created 2D art and book trailers, meet authors of some of the award nominated books, and enjoy other literacy based activities.

2016 Summer Reading

Summer is a great time for our students to freely choose what they want to read and read for fun! Did you know studies have shown that reading just five books over the summer can prevent summer learning loss? Those who read recreationally have been shown to perform better academically than those who do not. So with that in mind, here are some reading suggestions and resources for you to use this summer. Get in the GAME - READ!
