Welcome to the Bendix Media Center!

The Bendix Media Center is a multi-purpose space used to promote literacy and technology at Annandale Elementary School. Students, from preschool to grade five, and staff, have access to lessons and stories in the "Tree House", reading spaces throughout the room, the online card catalog, work tables, computer labs, computers on wheels, and of course - books!

Technology
The Bendix Media Center helps students and staff connect with technology. Two computer labs provide opportunities for web navigation, keyboarding, and  publishing, as well as a testing site for MAPS and MCAs. The genius bar houses iPads for perusing the online card catalog. Interactive whiteboards are available in the labs and the tree house. IPads and Touchscreens provide mobile technology. Our collection of ebooks is accessible online.

Books and Breakfast
Many students are invited to spend time reading each morning from 8:00 - 8:20 while enjoying a Cardinal Cafe breakfast.  Books and Breakfast is a great opportunity to help students meet their weekly Razzle Dazzle reading goals, strengthen reading skills, and most of all... promote a love for reading!
