Library

The St. Charles School library serves to instill a love of reading.  The library offers all students access to a wide range of resources.  Resources are selected to support and enrich the curriculum. 

 

Students visit once a week with their class to check out books.  The library is a welcoming space for students.  There is weekly story time reading for grades TK through 2nd

 

We welcome students, parents and faculty to check out our collection of fiction and non-fiction books.

Volunteers

 

Parents help in many different ways at the library, from shelving books, working the circulation desk, reading to the children at story time, and helping with the new book processing. If you are interested in becoming a library volunteer please contact Diann Corral at dcorral@scb.school

 

Scholastic Reading Counts

 

Scholastic Reading Counts is an independent reading program used by St. Charles School that combines reading practice and software based assessment.  Students can choose from thousands of popular and engaging titles, read the book, then take the corresponding quiz.  The program is aligned with the Lexile framework.  The vast majority of the books in the library have these quizzes available for our students.

 

To check if we have a quiz for your book or what the Lexile or reading level of your book is, just click on the Scholastic Reading Counts link below:

2017 Spring Scholastic Book Fair Results

 

Our 2017 Spring Book Fair was our most successful ever!  Our sales surpassed last year and we earned $5,146.84 in Scholastic dollars.  We were able to use our Scholastic Dollars to purchase books for the teachers from their wish lists, and books for our school library.

 

Thank you to the many volunteers who helped with the Scholastic Book Fair, and we also greatly appreciate the new book donations from our students made during our February 2017 Library Book Donation Drive.  Thank you for your generous support!
