Myakka River Elementary School
The Title 1 Family Center is an integral part of the school wide effort to offer educational support to our families. The atmosphere of the center is friendly, fun filled, comfortable, and informative. Families are encouraged to come to the Center and talk with Mrs. Kopp about their child reading. The Family Resource Center is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:45 8:30am in building. Look for the welcome banner on door.
You and your child will be able to look over a wide selection of books that are right for your child current reading level and interests. Having books on the correct level provides the greatest opportunity for reading skills to grow. During each visit to the center you may check out up to three books. In addition, each child will receive a book so you can build a home library and a pencil.
In addition to the great books, we have punch cards. Check out your books, read them, bring them back and you get a punch on your punch card. Five punches and you receive a card for a free ice cream cone from McDonalds! Turn your completed punch card in for a drawing once a month and you could win two happy meals and two combo meals from McDonalds, too! Be sure to thank McDonalds for partnering with our Family Center.
