Welcome to the Cleveland Media Center
Welcome to the Media Center at The Cleveland Academy of Leadership!
Our goal is to help foster a love for reading by connecting students with books they will enjoy and by assisting teachers with the right materials they need to support the student curriculum.
Students will remain 3 feet apart as much as possible.
Chairs and tables will be sanitized in-between classes.
Students will use hand sanitizer before looking for their books.
Books will no longer be quarrantined.
Scholastic Book Fair Returns!
The Scholastic Book Fair was held Sept. 7th-14th.
We had a very successful Book Fair this year! Total sales were $1856.49. For the first time, a scanner was used and students were issued receipts. That was a fun and sometimes challenging aspect of this fair. Thanks to these sales, the library will get over $800 in books from Scholastic. Ms. Riley uses these funds to purchase “fun” books the children enjoy such as Pete the Cat, Pig the Pug books, Jory John books, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dork Diaries, graphic novels, and much more.... When choosing books with these funds, Ms. Riley does not consider if a book ties into the curriculum since the children are spending their money (or their parents’ money), she chooses books she thinks they will enjoy just for the pure pleasure of reading. Thanks for supporting our fall book fair.
