Children Reading

Kensington Elementary's Media Center houses over 14,000 materials available to students, teachers, and parents. These include print books, reference books, audio and video materials, and periodicals. The nonfiction section supports the school curriculum and students' interests. The books available span a wide range of ability levels and many are coded with colored dots so students can easily identify books on their individual reading levels.

Students have access to Destiny Quest, our online catalog, and FollettShelf, our ebook collection. Students can search by ability level, interest, subject, title, or author. Destiny Quest and Follett Shelf can be accessed from home.

The media center walls are beautifully painted with murals by a local artist, Barney Slice. Books are arranged in sections titled Easy, Early Chapter, Fiction, Nonfiction, Biography, Caldecott Award Books, Newbery Award Books, and Reference. Teachers have educational resources available to them in the professional room.

There are 9 computers for student use and a laptop cart with 25 laptops. There is also a promethean board available for media center lessons.

Be sure to check out our links for Parents, Teachers, and Students for even more resources!
