ABOUT THE MEDIA CENTERQUICK LINKS


The Media Center is an integral part of learning at Rocky Mount. Here children are welcome to check out books, read, do research and access the Internet. Over 11,000 items are available for student and teacher use including books, magazine, software and videos. We are open from 8:00am - 2:10pm every school day and encourage you to stop by in person or visit us online.

Rocky Mount is fortunate to have access to numerous off-site databases. These resources are available both at school and to our students at home. 






Media Center Curriculum.



The Media Center sees every class once every two weeks. we focus primarily on English/Language Arts and technology standards. Below are some examples of lessons we have completed so far this school year:


  • Finding books using Destiny and a book hunt locating books online and in the Media Center by category and Lexile level.
  • Literary genres. Students write a summary about their favorite book and take a picture to create a reading database.
  • Research with non-fiction books. Classes created a "Weird but True" book.
  • Creating, editing and sharing a document using Office365.
  • Installing a school printer and printing from a student login.
  • Exploring the genre of Drama and, in small groups, writing a act play and then performing the play for the class.
  • Doing a STEM activity involving "Novel Engineering."


The Cobb County Public Library has teamed up with Cobb County Schools to offer extended access to print and online resources. Students now have access to public library databases using their Cobb students ID's.
