The Churchland Elementary library is an exciting place! All classes have library instruction during their Encore schedule and students check-out books during Open Library time each day.
The majority of books in our library are shelved by their Accelerated Reader level, to make it easier for students to locate books that are appropriate for them. The reading levels are color coded for the students' convenience:0.1 - 0.9 Yellow1.0 - 1.9 Orange2.0 - 2.9 Purple3.0 - 3.9 Tan4.0 - 4.9 Blue5.0 - 5.9 Red6.0 - 6.9 Green7.0 - 7.9 Gray8.0 - 8.9 Black9.0+ WhiteStudents in grades 1-6 may check-out two books at a time, and kindergarten students may check out one book at a time.
Student helpers, called Library Pages, help check-out books, return books to their correct shelves, and help keep the book shelves straight. Pages are students in fourth and fifth grade who come to the library once a week. Parent volunteers also help keep the library running smoothly. The library greatly appreciates both its volunteers and Pages.
Accelerated Reader Home Connect
Parent Connect is an important part of Renaissance Place. Make sure you click the link at the bottom of the page to easily keep track of your child's AR progress from home. Did you know you can also find book titles on your child’s reading level through Home Connect? You can sign up for up to five email addresses to receive instant notifications when your child takes an AR test. This easily allows you to monitor your child's quizzing.
If there are any questions you can e-mail the librarian at Jonathan.Nonnemacher@pps.k12.va.us .
The PTA sponsors three Scholastic Book Fairs that are held in the library each school year: One in November, one in March, and a BOGO Fair in June. These Book Fairs give parents the opportunity to purchase new books and related items for their students, friends, and family.
When you are visiting Churchland Elementary, make sure you come by the library and say hello, check out our books and maybe even volunteer!
