Library

ACCELERATED READER PROGRAM

The accelerated reading program at Westmount School is an online program through Renaissance Place that helps students improve their reading comprehension. Throughout the year students will take STAR Reading tests to determine their reading range. Once the student knows their range they choose books to read in that range. After reading the book  they will take a quiz on the computer. The questions on the quiz are multiple choice. The students earn points as they read books and do tests. Once they earn points they are eligible for prizes.  There are 23 prizes in total.  Once a student  reaches prize 15 they are allowed to take out two books for the rest of the year.  Each month the student who has read the most books and earned the most points in each class can sign out two books for the next month.

 

 FUNDRAISING

 

BOOK FAIR

The biggest fundraiser for the library is the Scholastic Book Fair which is run twice a year, in October and May.  During this time we convert half of our library into a bookstore.  The students come with their class to fill out a wish list and browse the selection.  We also host an evening for families to come in and shop.  Thank you to everyone who supports this fundraiser, it makes an incredible difference in our collection.  There also needs to be a HUGE thank you sent out to the parents who volunteer their time during the sale, without your donation of time there would not be a book fair.

USED BOOK SALE

The library is always looking for books for the Used Book Sale which is held in November each year during Parent Teacher Interviews. Money raised from this sale is used to purchase supplies for our Makespace Fridays.

MAKER SPACE

         

Classes that have a second library time on Friday get to enjoy several different stations that challenge their building abilities, their game skills and craft ideas. One of the most popular games is checkers with students always ready to challenge one another or even challenge their teacher. Lego and Duplo are the most popular building material, with some amazing creations being on display.  Our craft area is always busy with students working on reusing and recycling items and turning them into fun projects.  This has become a favorite time for the students and they are always disappointed if they don't get to come.  Each class will get four makerspace times throughout the year so it is always greatly anticipated.

DIY Club

The newest endeavor in the library is our DIY club which runs at lunch recess on Monday and Thursday.  We brainstormed at the beginning of the year and came up with three projects.  Our first project was learning to crochet and knit.  Students taught each other and although interest dropped quite a bit by the end of the 2 month project the girls who stayed till the end seemed to have a lot of fun working together.  Our second project was a wooden bird feeder, and a big thank you goes out to Rona for the donation of glue and nails.  There were 24  participants including 2 adults and everyone had to learn how to measure, glue and nail.  it got quite loud at times, but there was a lot of great cooperation happening, and everyone took home a finished feeder at the end of January.  Our third project which is on the go till the end of March is a woven hula hoop rug made from recycled t-shirts.  We had to cut the shirts into one inch strips which was quite a challenge as we didn't have very many good fabric scissors, but with the help of a cutting board we got it done and the weaving began.  We will be meeting March 19 to decide on our final project for April - May and I will post pics once we get started.
