Accelerated Reader News
Great news! We now have Accelerated Reader Enterprise. This means that our students now have access to every test available in the Accelerated Reader Program. Instead of around 6,000 tests we now have access to over 150,000! You can check to see if a book is on the AR Program and also check the level at the following website:
How do we get money for new books???
In addition to Library Enhancement Funds from the state, we raise money for library books in several ways. We hold two books fairs - one in the fall and one in the spring. We also have a magazine fundraiser each year. We have also won several grants to purchase new books and technology for the library. This year we received $599.43 from the Jackson County Education Foundation.
Box Tops for Education
We are collecting Box Tops for our library! Last year we raised $1500 to purchase new books. This year our goal is $2000! Click the Box Top logo below for information on Box Tops and how you can help our school.
