summer reading

Hey, Tiger Families!! We have a new incentive and reward for our students! We call it Tiger Bling, and your cubs can earn it this summer! They just read at least 10 books within their AR level (level provided by their teacher), jot them down on their summer reading log (coming home today, spare attached), and then pass the AR quizzes when they get back to school in August.
Boom! They've earned their first Tiger Bling!

To see if a book has an AR quiz, visit .www.arbookfind.com and type in the ISBN, or the author (make sure the spelling is correct because it will not return close results). note the quiz number on the log, and then Read, Baby, Read!

Here's some great summer reading resources:
At the Reading Rockets website, .https://www.readingrockets.org/calendar/summer , you'll discover summer reading book lists and tons of great activities to encourage kids to learn, read, and have fun all summer.

Our Camden County Public Library offers thousands of ebooks and all you need to access them is a library card, - WooHoo!

Library Mission Statement

The mission of the David L. Rainer Elementary School Library is to create a welcoming, vibrant, student-centered learning hub at the heart of our school.  We endeavor to foster cultural and aesthetic appreciation, inspire intellectual curiosity, promote ethical standards, and nurture a deep and abiding love of reading and literature. We are a collaborative, integral part of the instructional program, dedicated to providing our learning community with meaningful instruction, enriching resources, and supportive services, while considering the varied interests, abilities, and maturity levels of the pupils served.

Further, our purpose is to ensure that our students are empowered with information literacy skills – acquiring, analyzing, and utilizing information - and are motivated to become productive, independent, lifelong learners, for the betterment of themselves and their communities in the 21st century.

This mission recognizes the essential role of the school library program in the educational process as students reach their full potential.
