The Open Door Christian Schools library/media center is a busy place! We have over 24,000 books and service all students grades Preschool-12. Students in grades K-4 come to the library as a class once a week. Grades 5-12 visit as needed or desired. We use the Accelerated Reader program in grades K-8. Students are tested and placed in a level based on their ability to ensure success. After they finish reading a book, they take a comprehension quiz on the computer.
The library/media center hosts events throughout the school year including two book fairs. We celebrate our summer reading with a party at the beginning of the school year. We celebrate Dr. Seuss’s Birthday in March. At the end of the year we host an Accelerated Reader store. Students accumulate points throughout the year and spend them at our store. We also host a special lunch in the spring to honor our top AR point earners.
A great feature added to the Library is the Reading Loft! Students love to climb up and find a comfy spot to read a good book!
