At Sleepy Hill, our goal is to promote literature and lifelong learning! Our students visit the media center weekly to check out books, take AR quizzes, do research or just spend a few minutes reading! Students in 3rd – 5th grade may check out three books, while students in Kindergarten – 2nd may check out two books. Parents are welcome in time to visit our media center and check out books also!
Along with a wonderful collection of books, we also have several online resources available for students and parents. Links to these resources are listed below.
