Media Center

The St. Rose School Media Center serves K-8 students with books, computers, and classes.  The Media Center is an integral part of student literacy – the ability to read for knowledge and pleasure, write coherently, and think critically about information from all media. 

Library Services

The school library maintains a book collection to support and encourage student literacy. Students can find and borrow appropriate fiction and nonfiction. Students in kindergarten through third grade have weekly scheduled library time designed to encourage their excitement about books and stories. Students in fourth through eighth grades also use the library for printed research materials

Computer Skills

St. Rose students in first through third grade take computer skills classes in the Media Center.  These class sessions are aimed at teaching keyboard familiarity as well as mouse skills, navigating layered menus, and file management. The skills are taught directly and through projects and activities tied to classroom curriculum. Students in grades four through eight use the Media Center computers for Star testing, research projects, and creation.

Accelerated Reader

The Accelerated Reader Program is used in grades four through eight to promote literacy. Books on the Accelerated Reader program may be found here:

Books not on the program may still be awarded an AR certificate, depending on the merit of the book.  See the librarian for more information on this.
