Our school library is a beautiful and cozy centrally located space that houses more than 10,000 volumes and displays student artwork. Books are color coded for students to easily identify books in their reading ability range. Each class visits the library at least once per week, allowing students to return library books and check out new ones. Additionally, classrooms have smaller collections of books appropriate to the developmental stages of students at the grade level. This allows students to readily spend even a few minutes in independent reading if they complete an activity before their classmates. Students set reading goals and are able to take reading comprehension quizzes online. Each classroom visits the school library for thirty minutes during a regular school week.
A book fair is held each fall to provide families the opportunity to purchase books for home and to donate books to the library.
Our library’s acquisitions, organization and maintenance are all managed by parent volunteers who generously give of their time and talents.
Accelerated Reading Program
First through eighth grade students take quarterly STAR Reading tests in the lab to monitor reading performance and have the opportunity to use Accelerated Reader (AR or ACR) quizzes in coordination with the reading program. We now have access to more than 4100 titles.
Don't forget to take advantage of our wonderful St. Louis County Library system. There are two convenient West County locations, the Daniel Boone Branch in Ellisville and the Samuel C. Sachs Branch in Chesterfield.
