Students entering grades 1-8 in the fall may participate in the All Saints summer reading program. If they fill out one book log, they will receive a prize once school resumes in the fall.  If they fill out two or more book logs, they will also receive additional prizes.  Book logs are available at the link above.


The Dakota County Library system also has a summer reading program for kids of all ages.  This year you can sign up online and pick up a Summer Discovery Bag, which includes a free book, curbside at any library location.  Click the link here for more information on the programs for kids from birth to twelfth grade.


There is a summer reading program at Barnes and Noble where kids in grades 1-6 can fill out a reading log and earn a free book.  To find out more about this program and to print off your Barnes and Noble reading log, click this link.


You can participate in all of these programs this summer, but most important-KEEP READING!


The Dakota County Library is offering curbside pickup for library books.  You just log on to their website, reserve the books you want to check out, and then they will send you an e-mail to let you know when they are ready.  You then can call to schedule the pick up time that is convenient for you.  If you don't want to venture out for new books, you can always take advantage of the electronic options that the Dakota County Library offers: 
Students visit the library once a week. This is their opportunity to learn about library resources and develop their library skills. Of course, they may check out something to read!
Kinders may check out one book each week from the library. Students in grades 1-5 are able to check out 2 materials on their library account, while Middle School students may check out 3 materials on their account.
Students in grades K-8 visit the library on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays for book checkout. Books can be checked out for up to two weeks. Please help your child remember to return books on time.

AR (Accelerated Reader) and READING INCENTIVES
The Accelerated Reader (AR) program is a supplement to the reading curriculum at All Saints School. Students in grades 3-8 can take Accelerated Reader (AR) quizzes for monthly incentives. On the wall outside of the library, the Reading Incentive Committee posts the requirements and incentives each month from October through May. In addition to taking AR tests in their classrooms, students in grades 3-8 can take tests during the last 15 minutes of library time, or in the library before or after school. Falcon's Nest also has a computer for AR testing.

Grades 1-2 can also turn in reading logs to earn the monthly incentives. Be sure the books are at your child's reading level, so he or she can read the books independently.
Check back in the fall to learn about goals and prizes for next school year.
Want to see if a book has an AR quiz? Check out is a good resource to find books at a student's Lexile reading level, which is provided after taking the MAP Reading test.  Please remember that a book in a student's Lexile reading level may have content that you would not like them to read, so please take care to select appropriate books from the level.
If you would like to receive an e-mail when your student takes an AR test, please contact us at and we will set you up in the system.
Students in grades 3-8 may read any 3 books that are nominated for this year's Maud Hart Lovelace Award within their corresponding division (grades 3-5 or grades 6-8), pass AR tests on these books, and vote for their favorite at our voting party in the spring!  This voting party, which will be held in March or April, includes a lunch of pizza and other yummy treats.

Do you have gently used books that are sitting around cluttering up your bookshelves?  The library accepts used book donations to add to our collection, any time during the year.  You can bring them in to the library with a note that they are a donation and who they are from.  Thanks for helping build up our collection!
