Today's Learners - Tomorrow's Leaders

Book Fair

January  23rd- January 27th
Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that provides the books kids want to read. It's a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. 
Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Please make plans to come to our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child's reading habits. 
Remember, all purchases benefit our school. See you at the Book Fair!

What Makes Our Media Center Special?


All students are welcome to come into the Media Center as needed to exchange books, work on projects, complete research, etc. This is called flexible access. We also have scheduled classes to teach students how to use the resources in the media center.

The Avalon morning news program is run by our Awesome Avalon 5th grade students. We have a green screen, TelePrompTer software, and other high tech production equipment. Students help write and produce the show.  

We have over 15,000 books in areas such as: biography, non-fiction, books on CD, fiction, early readers, picture books, reference materials, books written in Spanish, and bilingual materials written in Spanish and English.

We host a Scholastic Book Fair every year including a Family Night for families to come to purchase reading materials. All profits are used to purchase more books and materials for the media We offer motivational reading programs such as Scholastic Reading Counts and the Sunshine State Young Reader's Award program (SSYRA).  Students earn recognition in a variety of ways as they read more books. They must read at least three of the fifteen titles to vote in the SSYRA poll in the spring.
