Ocean Springs Upper Elementary Home of the Greyhounds

Upper Elementary Media Center

My name is Rebecca Sisco.  This is my third year as a media specialist at the Upper Elementary.  Before that, I taught fourth grade for ten years.  I am from Mobile, Alabama, but we have lived in Ocean Springs for 13 years.  I am married to Jamie Sisco and we have a ten year old daughter and a ten year old son.  I love to travel, go on the boat, and read! 
                                    
I hope that you find this website helpful and motivating.  This is where I will post important dates and information about the Ocean Springs Upper Elementary media center.  I will also upload and share valuable reading resources that you might find helpful!  Have a wonderful year!

They can also use this at home. This resource is full of information and super easy to navigate.  If you click on the World Book Online Kids tab, they have activities to go with all different topics.  This is a great way to keep them engaged and learning at the same time!

I encourage students to not only search various topics, but also build their own boards.  The boards are a great way to organize the information they find and show off their creative side!
