Barrow Elementary, media center is the hub of the school

At Barrow Elementary, our media center is the hub of the school. In this school year, we’ve seen students more than 45,000 times, checked out more than 24,000 books and engaged in innovative projects with every grade level. For example, pre-kindergarten students used studio equipment to write and film weather forecasts; kindergartners researched various topics using databases; first-graders created movies about the seasons; third-graders researched and created designs for a new state park, fourth-graders created book trailers advertising authors and fifth-graders taught social studies to one another.
