Your student's Accelerated Reader progress can be viewed on the following site:

The Library hours for the 2016 - 2017 school year are:


7:50-3:30   Mondays, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday

7:50-2:30   Wednesday (except on staff collaboration days, when the library will close at 2:20)

Students are welcome to use the library during their lunch break, before school and after school unless otherwise posted.  Because meetings are sometimes held after school in the library, a notice will be posted on the library entrance door every day regarding its availability.


Library Rules:


New this year, we have established library passes for each lunch.  The yard duty supervisors will hand out passes to those children that are finished with their lunch, have cleaned up their area and have asked nicely.  After 30 passes have been handed out, the library is closed to other students.  However, students may come in quickly to turn in books.  Please let your student know that it is best to print at home or before school to ensure their assignment is turned in on time.



If you have any inquiries about the library, please do not hesitate to contact me.
