DES LIBRARY MEDIA CENTER (2015-2016)

Library Yearly Theme:
"All Aboard for Reading!" Students will board the "Reading Express" in the library this year to become better readers.

Library Monthly Themes:
Each year we will encourage and assist with reading because it is the foundation of all other subjects. Our weekly library lessons with K through 2nd grade will focus on reading and writing, but mostly on reading. Our MES students need to be at or above their grade level in reading. We will teach a variety of reading, writing, and researching skills through our weekly scheduled K through 1st grade classes. Our goal is to assist in reading comprehension and vocabulary.

Our Accelerated Reader Program
AR Yearly Theme: "Making Tracks to Reading Success!"
Reading is a life-long skill! We need to promote and practice our reading to become better readers. One of our library's goals, if not the most important goal, is to encourage student reading!

The Accelerated Reader Program at DES encourages and motivates students to read. Students take tests on computers for books they have read.  The AR Program is online at Renaissance Place and is coordinated by the library media specialist, Mrs. Eva Bennett, and the library assistant.

A student's reading success in grades 1 - 5 will be recognized by awarding: 1) a sticker upon reaching 10 pts. 2) an AR Bookmark upon reaching 15 pts. 3) an AR pencil upon reaching 20 pts. 4) a certificate upon reaching 25 or more pts. *ALL STUDENTS ACHIEVING AT LEAST 50 POINTS FIRST SEMESTER WILL ATTEND AN AR PARTY IN DECEMBER!

The top student in each grade level will be recognized with a certificate and an award at the end of the year.

The top student of our school will receive a trophy! There must be a minimum of 100 points earned in order to qualify. Forthcoming monthly themes will be located at TrackStar. Our library will have monthly themes which will encourage,review,and reinforce information literacy in math, reading, researching, writing, and/or other basic skills such as computer literacy.
