What if there was ONE thing you could do that would absolutely improve your child’s ability in school? What if it were free? Well, there is! Research has shown the single most important activity for building the knowledge for eventual success, is reading aloud to children. Jim Trelease, national reading expert and the author of The Read-Aloud Handbook, states that reading aloud to your child “conditions the child to associate reading with pleasure, creates background knowledge, and provides a reading role model.” I hear many parents say, “Sure I know I should read to my child, but who has time?” What if I told you it would take only 15 minutes a day?

Other Reasons Reading With Your Child Is Important
  • stimulates your child’s imagination
  • develops your child’s interest in reading and in books
  • improves your child’s listening skills
  • builds vocabulary
  • helps your child to understand stories and “book language”
  • creates a bond between you and your child
  • provides your child with a positive role model

Important Information

About the Library

Students in grades 1-5 are allowed 3 books from the school library; at least 2 must be in their reading level.  Kindergarteners will start checking out 1 book at a time.  They must return the book before a new book is allowed. 
Students are responsible for the materials they check out from the Media Center. Students are reminded from Kindergarten to keep library books in backpacks when not being read. There are two very important reasons for this rule. One, if the book is in the student's backpack, the book is available for reading at home as well as at school. The other reason for this rule is that it helps students keep track of their books. If books are overdue, the student can retrieve the book from the classroom and return it later in the day, thus allowing them an opportunity to check out a new book. If the book is at home, outside of the backpack, it is more likely to be lost or forgotten. Please help us remind students of this rule.
