Library and Technology Resources
The College Grove library is located in the center of our building and strives to build a strong literacy foundation for our College Grove Scholars. The College Grove library offers a broad range of materials to supplement the WCS curriculum and foster a love of reading. The library serves as a technology hub.
Media Center Policies
Each class has a scheduled time to receive library instruction, return books, and select new ones. Individual students may come to check out books during the day with teacher permission.
Students have daily access to the library and may come each day for a new book with teacher permission. Books may be renewed one time and then must be returned for others to enjoy. There is not a fine for overdue books. However, if a student has an overdue book, checkout privileges may be denied until the book is returned.
Please return damaged books to the library for repair. If a book is lost, an overdue bill with the cost of replacing the book will be sent home.
Media Center Resources
Use our CGES online book finder to locate a book within our media center.
See your child’s Accelerated Reader progress using AR Home Connect.
The Accelerated Reading program is a supplemental program that many teachers utilize in order to help strengthen student reading and comprehension skills. Students take STAR reading tests and are given a reading range consistent with their reading ability. Students read a book within their range and take a short reading quiz to obtain points. Students are assigned a goal for each nine weeks and are rewarded with an Accelerated Reader party if they meet their goal. The program is only used in tandem with other literacy tools and does not affect student grades. All books in the media center are color coded in an effort to help find on-level books easily. Please consult our AR Book Levels chart to determine the color system.
