Library & Media Center
Elementary classes visit the library on a weekly basis to select books. Middle and high school classes visit the library on an as needed basis. The library is open to any student individually from 8:30-9:00 or 3:00-3:30.
We also offer the Accelerated Reader program to students in grades one through six. Accelerated Reader is an assessment tool that primarily determines whether or not a child has read a book. To use this assessment, students first read an AR book (a book that has a related quiz in the database and that is in our media center). Teachers monitor student reading and once the child has finished the book, he or she takes a quiz on a computer. The quizzes contain multiple choice questions depending on the book's difficulty and length. These questions ask literal comprehension questions. Students must correctly answer a set number of questions to pass an exam. The students receive a percentage of the points associated with the book depending on the number of questions answered correctly.
PDF files of the AR quizzes will be available and will be sorted by author and title.
