WELCOME TO THE EDGEWOOD ELEMENTARY LIBRARY!

At Edgewood we love to read and being able to read on grade level is our goal. The Accelerated Reader program helps our students reach that goal. Students take a test known as the STAR Reading test to determine their reading level. When students come to the library they are encouraged to check out books that are on their level. This is because studies have shown that students that try to read books that are above their level become frustrated and give up on the book they have chosen.

Each 9 weeks students are given a reading goal to reach. If the student has reached their goal by the end of the nine weeks they can pick one prize from the library prize closet.
