Instilling the love of reading is a top priority at St. Mary’s.
Our teachers and media specialist aim to make your child a lifelong reader. SMA provides students with choices in what they read through self-selection from our library and couples this with class novel studies.
St. Mary’s maintains a library of over 5,000 books. Additionally, we have classroom sets of decoder books for young readers, high-interest books for beginner readers, and novels for novel studies for more advanced exploration of literature studies. An engaging selection of classical literature is included at every grade level.
We do DEAR time–where we Drop Everything And Read self-selected books for enjoyment. We take reading seriously.
