Holly Condit - Librarian
Hello, I am Holly Condit & I am the Elementary Librarian. I have been in Elementary classrooms for the past 13 years and am absolutely thrilled to be embarking on this new Library adventure this year!
Alex Wilson - Library Aide
Hello, I am Alex WIlson & I am the Elementary Library aide. I have been working as the Elementary workroom aide as well as cafeteria aide at MCS for the past 4 years. I'm excited to broaden my area of skills and can't wait to witness and foster the excitement and love for reading going on in the Library!
Elementary Library hours: 7:35-3:45, daily. Students may come for book return/checkout, A.R. testing, and prizes during this time.
The MCS Accelerated Reader program has undergone a makeover this summer and I am so happy for the kids to get back to school and hear the changes. All Elementary students will be rewarded for their reading/testing efforts in A.R. through the manner of earning points, (rather than word count). Just like each book has a word count, it also has a point value; this is what the students will accumulate to earn prizes this year. (see prize sheet below) For those of you who have been here in year’s past, you may be asking “what about STAR Club?” Although STAR Club itself is no longer a goal for our readers, all of the previous ‘perks’ of STAR Club are embedded within the new prize list!
Accelerated Reader is a very useful tool in promoting reading stamina and fluency as well as reading comprehension and confidence in readers of all ages. Our goal in this ‘A.R. makeover’ is to encourage and celebrate the love of reading for every single Elementary student in a continuous way throughout the year! We want kids to be excited about reading and look forward to visiting the Library as often as possible!
Our Accelerated Reader “Home Connect” page will help you keep track of your student’s reading goals and progress. You will need our MCS web address (below) and your child’s username & password to login.
