Library and Technology Programs

Library

Students visit the Library weekly for 30 minutes to listen to story-time, learn library skills and check out books. Our school participates in Scholastic Reading Counts (SRC) and those prizes are awarded during your student’s library time. 

We have at least one Scholastic Book Fair each year, usually at the end of September. We will send out parent volunteer notices that you may return to help out. Please shop the Fair as it is our main fundraiser and supports the purchase of new books for the library!

There is also an Online Book Fair that runs concurrently, which is especially helpful for those of you who are unable to make it to the fair due to your schedules. The selection online is about 50% larger than the items we receive for the fair, plus there is no shipping charges for any online items you order.

TECHNOLOGY Programs

Both Corona Creek and Meadow School have technology classrooms which students visit weekly. At Corona Creek the classroom is called the Dugout and at Meadow it is called MStudio. We have recently added STEAM components to the technology curriculum to enhance the computer skills which are taught at our schools.

TK through 2nd grade students visit the technology classroom for 30 minutes to learn keyboard skills, fundamental word processing skills, receive computer assisted instruction and participate in Reading Counts, a computer-based reading program, IXL Reading and Math and a number of other programs.

Students in 3rd through 6th grade attend the technology classroom once per week for 45 minutes. In addition to what has already been mentioned, upper grade students learn Power Point, basic Excel and more advanced word processing. Students also conduct research and prepare reports using the Internet.

All students and their families must sign an Internet Use Agreement before the Internet may be accessed.

 

 

Library Hint:

At the beginning of the year we send home a bookmark with Library Rules that we review with the students. Also, you receive a letter outlining the responsibilities of the students and their books. Please review this occasionally with your child. Encourage your student to KEEP the plastic bag we give out to use all year to protect their books in their backpacks.
