Library/Media Center

Welcome to Library with Mrs. Coyle

The All Saints Catholic Library is open! New modular furniture is on the way to create flexible seating options so that an entire class can safely use the library space. A mobile library service to delivery reserved HOLD books for students in 5th-8th grade will continue this year to provide remote book accessibility!  There will be cleaning procedures in place aligned with CDC requirements. The library has evolved into a “dynamic” space always ready to move and change to support multiple strategies for academic success.

Accelerated Reader Program

The Accelerated Reader Program is a computerized reading enrichment program. Students have the option to read a book and then take a computer quiz that is given in a multiple-choice format to assist in developing comprehension skills.  Students will have remote access to take AR quizzes on campus and at home.

How Does The Library Facilitate The AR Program?

This year the library will initiate an optional reading program for 2nd-8th graders called “BookFlix”…Be A Binge Reader!   The idea is to enter readers into a raffle prize drawing every two weeks for those students that take and pass at least one AR quiz during the allotted time period.  One winner will be chosen from each grade 2nd-8th (not class)  for a sanitized bookmark, special pencil, pen, etc. that has been quarantined in a plastic bag.

 

For further details, please see our Accelerated Reader Program information page.
