Renovated Media Center Brings Big Dreams to North Lauderdale Elementary
On March 29 North Lauderdale Elementary School celebrated the ribbon-cutting of their fully renovated media center. Event attendees included North Lauderdale Elementary staff, District 4 Board Member and Chair Lori Alhadeff, among others. Also in attendance was Steven Meza, who is the Legislative Aid for North Lauderdale Mayor Samson Borgelin.
The renovated space include vibrant furniture that is inviting and light enough for students to move as easily as possible. So, whether students want to read a book on their own or collaborate with their classmates, they can do so comfortably. Safari murals painted by a local artist now fills the room with quotes encouraging students to learn, read, and discover more about themselves. The space has also been equipped with a Promethean board and recordex, making it an excellent place for distance learning, something available to all students.
During the ceremony, Ms. Margaret Thompson, the school’s media clerk, expressed her excitement about the renovated media center, saying, “I’m about to cry. This has been a long time coming for this school. Just to have books on the shelf, to see the mural. It’s so bright, and everything is so beautiful. I hear from everybody that it is very inviting, comfortable, and they love it.”
