There are SO many important reasons to read to and with your child (of any age, yes including your teenagers!) but the benefits of reading to young children are tremendous. This article from Bilingual Kidspot is a great one, for both the uni-lingual and multilingual! It outlines the reasons why reading is so very critical to your child’s growth and development – intellectually, academically, socially and emotionally!

Students in Nursery to Grade 3 are permitted to take out one book at a time, and return that same book to the library the following week. Books may be renewed, with a maximum of one renewal, to ensure all students have an equal opportunity to read new books. PARENTS – Please be sure that your child returns his/her book on a timely basis. Often young children will get upset when they cannot take out a book because they did not return their previous book!  


 GRADES 4 – 8

Students in grades 4 through 8 are allowed to submit a written request to take out more than one book at a time, especially when conducting research. Books may be renewed, with a maximum of three renewals, upon request.

Students in grades 4 through 8 are also enrolled in the Writer’s Workshop course. Writer’s Workshop is a new, one-hour period block assigned weekly to students in the fourth to eighth grades, that is aligned with the New york State College & Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Writing. The workshop works with and supports material covered in grade-level ELA writing courses.

Please refer to the course outline, which is liked below for further information.
