Welcome to the Palm River Elementary Media Center page.
The Media Center is the Hub of the School!
About our Media Specialist: Hello, I am Ms. Whitley, proud Media Specialist at Palm River Elementary School. This is my second year as the Media Specialist at Palm River Elementary.
What do I love about being a Media Specialist? Our students and the books. I am always excited about the SSYRA book lists. Also, I love fostering students' love for books and the library.
What am I reading? Currently I am reading a SSYRA Book, Amari and the Night Brothers.
What is my favorite HCPS event each year? The S.L.A.M. Showcase. (I think I am more excited than my students!) Palm River was represented last year by two very dedicated 5th grade students. It was a lot of hard work for a few months, but it paid off as they were able to see their artwork showcased at SLAM. I am so proud of them.
Also, our Panthers met Audrianna Cuevas, author of The Total Eclipse of Nestor Lopez, which was one of the SSYRA Books (Grades 3-5) for 2022-2022 at her book signing. She was awesome.
