SUMMER IS A GREAT TIME FOR READING!
 
All Saints is offering a summer reading incentive for all returning students.  Fill out a summer reading log and return it the first week of school in the fall for prizes!  Return one reading log for an out of uniform pass.  Each extra reading log that is filled out and returned will earn students additional prizes.  Each student was given one reading log during library.  If you need more logs, you can find them in the hallway outside of the library, or at the link to the right.
 
The Dakota County Library has a summer reading program as well.  Starting June 13, you can go to any of their locations to pick up a free book and an activity log.  The program is for ages birth through grade 12.  Follow this link to learn more.
 
Barnes & Noble also has a summer reading program.  Fill out their book log to earn a free book!  Their program is for grades 1 through 6.  You can access their reading log here.
 
Enjoy your summer and take time to READ!!
CLASSROOM VISITS
Students have 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!  To access our online library catalog, click this link: Library Catalog  Every student can access the catalog from home and request books during the school year.  Students can also see the books they have checked out, and renew books from this site.  For a quick tutorial, click the link that says "Surpass Tutorial" at the right side of this page.
 
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.
 
Books can be checked out for up to two weeks. Please help your child remember to return books on time.

READING INCENTIVES
 
We have information for this year's reading incentive program in a document at the right side of this page. This program is optional, but if a student joins in, they will receive some fun prizes!
 
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. 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 from home. Falcon's Nest also has a computer for AR testing.  Follow this link to take the tests. AR Test Link

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.
 
Want to see if a book has an AR quiz? Check out www.arbookfind.com
 
www.lexile.com 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 [email protected] and we will set you up in the system.

USED BOOKS
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!
