We have Accelerated Reading (AR) time each day from 8:05-8:25 for all students grades 1-8. Accelerated Reader makes it easy for students to practice fiction and nonfiction reading at their personal reading levels to build knowledge, vocabulary, and fluency. Reading is a skill and it requires not just instruction but practice. AR enables powerful practice by providing data to monitor and personalize reading activities. At St. Rose, AR is part of our comprehensive reading program. AR supports and enhances our teacher’s instruction, textbooks, and other instructional materials.
Our school library is an important asset to our students. Children in Rosebuds through Grade 8 independently choose books and are responsible for the care and timely return of all materials. Our library books are coded to comply with our school wide leveled reading program allowing students to choose an appropriate book for their reading level. The library contains a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction titles to encourage our student body to enjoy their pleasure reading.
