Principal John Murphy When students read books regularly their knowledge of the world grows exponentially. Children who read improve their personal skills, build confidence and develop social skills. Increased self-efficacy, reduction of stress, and a firm foundation for academics are all a by-product of the simple act of reading. Each new book by an exciting author inspires students to read and learn. Classrooms and everyday life is enhanced when students have new creative literature within their reach.

Classroom libraries, our Learning Commons and the schools Home Reading Program are designed to expose students to new literature, developing their imagination, reading skills and for some students their emotional development. Children thrive in environments that offer a sense of wonder and imagination; reading can help provide students with an array of skills to deal with adversity. Hooking students on a love of reading at an early age by providing interesting and engaging literature provides a strong foundation for future learning and growth. Accessing current literature will encourage students to develop literacy skills and allow families to develop a love of literacy.
