Jane Riley Media Center
Reading Challenge is Coming!
Can you volunteer to help? Sign up here: Reading Challenge Volunteers
Each student will receive a special reading log to keep track of reading outside of the school day. Any kind of reading counts: independent, reading with someone, or being read to.
Students will earn small rewards as they meet thier daily goals. Students who reach their total minimum reading goal will receive a coupon for ice cream at Lolita's Parlor and their picture taken, dressed as a fairy or wizard, in our enchanted forest photo booth!
Bookmark Contest: Students may submit designs by Friday, January 18. Use a fourth of a sheet of paper. Winners will have bookmarks printed!
Meet Mrs. Baringer
I love being the media specialist at Hickory Hills! I've enjoyed getting to know everyone here, and would like to share a little about myself. My husband and I have two sons and a fluffy Bichon dog named Skadi. Our older son lives in Boulder, Colorado, where he works as a technician in a physics lab and plays rugby in his spare time. Our younger son graduated from the University of Georgia recently, and now lives with his brother. They love to ski, hike, and mountain climb. In 2014, my husband and I moved to Smyrna from Maryland, where I was the media specialist for ten years. We're originally from New Orleans, and are pleased to be a bit closer to our relatives there, including several of my eight siblings.Parents, if I haven't yet met you, please stop in the media center sometime! Thanks for your support in my quest to encourage a love of reading!
