DON'T BE SCARED-READING IS AWESOME!
THE TWENTY BOOK CHALLENGE!
Osceola is getting serious about READING. Every student has signed a pledge that they will attempt to read at least TWENTY books this school year. Most of the staff is on board for the challenge as well, and our motto is "JUST READ. ANYTIME. ANYWHERE." The quarterly goal is to read 5 books, with a reflection card filled out for Language Arts teachers. Parents, you can help your students reach this goal (and maybe take the challenge yourself?!) by providing a good time and place for them to read, and encourage reading! There will be special fun incentives and rewards for those who MEET THE CHALLENGE! There is nothing that will help a student succeed more than becoming a confident and enthusiastic reader. Remember, READ WIDE!
READING IS ELEMENTAL
FIRE ♠ EARTH ♣ AIR ♥ WATER ♦ Which element are you? Read a book, tell us what element you think it relates to and why, and receive a leather bracelet with a bead for that element... Collect all four, or more!
The OMS Media Center sponsors two book fairs each year! Our first Fair was a HUGE success, even with Hurricance Irma giving us an unexpected break in the middle--our second Fair is NOW SCHEDULED for April 9th-13th, with the Online Fair starting a week before. MARK YOUR CALENDAR to visit the Fair and find some awesome reads for Spring, and SUMMER!

Here at the OMS Library/Media Center, our mission is for students to learn to be knowledgeable and efficient in finding and using information. We want them to challenge themselves to read outside their "comfort zone", to be good Digital Citizens in their online activities, and to become curious and exploratory readers. We strive to provide diverse and current selections, and students are encouraged to explore what types of literature and media are enjoyable and challenging to them.
