Elementary Library hours: 7:45-3:15, daily. Students may come for book return/checkout, A.R. testing, and prizes during this time.
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 is to encourage and celebrate the love of reading for every single Elementary student 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 log in.
One of the many ways we encourage students' reading is the use of Accelerated Reader quizzing. Students are rewarded for earning points by passing quizzes.
