Each year two students from each classroom are selected to be library helpers. These students are selected by their classroom teacher and assist in the library in many different ways including; bringing the classroom books to be returned, assisting with re-shelving books, and maintaining the computers in the labs and library. Library helpers are expected to meet their AR goals and demonstrate responsibility and good work habits while in the classroom.
Check Out Information
All students here at Walton have the opportunity to check out and take home books from the Library.
Students in grades Kindergarten and First may check out ONE book at a time.
Students in grades Second through Fifth may check out TWO books at a time.
Accelerated Reader and Renaissance Place
Renaissance Place is a set of teaching techniques to individualize and promote reading growth through extensive amounts of reading practice. Renaissance Place includes Accelerated Reading (AR) and here at Walton AR is a required piece of your students Language Arts curriculum. Students are required to meet AR goals each 9 Weeks. These goals are based on their Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) as determined by the STAR assessments that are taken throughout the school year. Students are motivated by reward sessions throughout the school year for meeting their AR goals. There is even a special "Early Bird" Program that recognizes students for reaching their goal early!
