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

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.

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.
