School Year Extra Credit Program
The Library’s Schoolyear Extra Credit Reading Program:
This program is managed by the Library staff during the school year. We provide quizzes for over 300 titles available in our Library. There are books for 5th & 6th-grade reading levels, and for 7th & 8th reading levels. Lists are posted in the Library, copied to every core teacher, and provided in the links below.
In each marking period, students may read up to 3 books from our posted lists; 5th & 6th graders may read from either list, 7th & 8th only from their own list. They must pass a quiz with 75% or higher; the quizzes are 12-16 questions, T & F, multi-choice, and some short answers.
During 5th-grade Library orientation, all students are informed of this program, including the advantages of reading one of these books for Sustained Silent Reading. During 5th-grade Library FP Arts classes this information is stressed. In 6th grade, this is reviewed in Reading classes. All teachers in our building allow students to apply for extra credit in their subjects. This includes FP Arts and PE.
Quiz scores are graded and stored in the Library. New quizzes are added on a regular basis.
Donations to the Library
Our EP Libraries are always grateful for donations of books, and money, of course! Students will occasionally offer gently used items for donations, and we definitely appreciate these! We cannot take magazines or encyclopedias, but any sort of fiction or nonfiction, paperback or hardback appropriate to our grade levels is welcome. Any items not placed in one of our collections will be forwarded to the local public library, or to a school where some hardship has been experienced. Books must be free of dirt and have no missing or defaced pages. Usually, a bookplate is placed in a donated book. Monetary donations, with checks made out to the Library, are often made in honor of a person or event, and purchases with these monies also receive a bookplate.
Thanks in advance for your generosity!
