The Library is located adjacent to the Lower and Main School buildings. The Lower School students receive library as a weekly enrichment that meets for 30 minutes. K5 – 5th grades participate in the Accelerated Reader program. K4 – 2nd grads has a reading budding (Patty the Patriot) that goes home with a different student each week. Patty the Patriot is read to and their week together is captured in a writing journal. The library enrichment period also offers computer time, puzzle time, and puppet time. The different genres are introduced in each class. September is Character Education Month and the students study the characteristics we need to become better young adults. Throughout the school year, the library hosts guest speakers, reading events, and challenges which increase the students reading skills.
Despite the chilly temperatures, our librarian Mrs. Ruth kept her promise to the lower school student body. They exceeded her AR book challenge this March so Mrs. Ruth graciously sat under the “slime bucket.”
