The Media Center at Kings Chapel Elementary is always buzzing with activity, a place where students connect to the world through books and technology. It is a place that both children and adults come to browse, read, and enjoy books in a relaxing and comfortable environment. The collection offers over 8,000 books and many other materials for our staff and students to utilize throughout the year. Activities in the Media Center include instruction in the use of reference materials, including Internet resources, storytelling, curriculum activities utilizing the computers and SmartBoard, and quiet reading time. Collaboration with the classroom teachers to support instruction is ongoing.

Accelerated Reader (AR) Program
Kings Chapel participates in the online version of the Accelerated Reader (AR) program. This allows our students in grades 1-5 to have access to all AR tests. Most books that your child reads will have an AR test. To search all available books with AR quizes go to ARbookfind.com. Please see Ms. Spivey if you have any questions.
