The American Christian Academy Library Program serves to instill a love of reading, inspire life-long learning, and foster independent library use. 15 classes in the elementary school visit the library once a week during a scheduled library time for a read-aloud lesson, to check out books, and take AR tests. Other elementary classes, as well as Middle School and High School students visit through the week at a convenient time to check out library books and take AR tests. Most times of the day, you will find an active and busy library at ACA. It is an inviting place where students are welcomed and loved!
I love my job and I strongly believe it is exactly where God wants me! I pray I can help students grow their love of reading. A love of learning and reading is invaluable. Studies show that students who read are more successful in school and have higher test scores than those that don't. Please encourage your child to read! Reading also is a great way to spend time with your child daily. Please read to your children. It creates an amazing bond! As the saying goes, “Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.”
Be sure to visit the other Library Tabs located to the left. Most answers can be found on these tabs. But please contact me at any time that you have a question about AR, books, or other library issues. I want to help!
May God bless you, your families, this school year, and ACA!

Some other ideas for test taking times & checking out books: MS & HS students may take tests before school begins in the morning, after finishing lunch, during break, or when they finish assignments/tests in class.
At this time, Elementary students will need to visit the library between 8:00-3:00 and when given permission by their teacher.
