Welcome to Summit School Learning Center

    The mission of our school libraries is to create inviting learning environments that inspire and honor curiosity, creativity and collaboration.

    In partnership with students and staff, we support and recognize reading as the foundation for students to become skilled in multiple literacies.  We strive to ensure that students become successful, lifelong learners.

  • Learning Center Update

    Posted by Jenny Wright on 9/7/2022

    It is so nice to see all the smiling faces back in the building! Classes will visit the Learning Center for their regularly scheduled class on Mondays and Fridays again this year.

    Mondays: Cole, Lee, Jacowitz, Mahoney, Manz, Hamilton

    Fridays: Dall, Jacobs, Emond, Murtha, Lines, Poncelet

    The library is open to students every day and they can come down to return, renew, or check out new books anytime their teacher gives them permission. 

     Please make a plan with your family for where you will keep library books at home in order to keep them safe from damage as well as a place that you will remember to collect them each week to return them to school.

    Posted by Jenny Wright on 8/26/2022

    We are so excited to welcome students back to Summit Street School! We've been busy cleaning and organizing the library so that we will be ready to checkout books next week. 

    If you have books at home from last year or from the summer, please send them back as soon as possible so that we can get them back on the shelves and available for the next student to check out.

    We hope everyone has a great summer and we also hope that our students will participate in our Candyland Summer Board Game Reading Activity!

    - Each student currently in grades K-2 will bring home a bag with a few borrowed books to read. Keep them all summer or return them on any Wednesday morning.

    - Students in grades K-2 can come to the school with a parent/ caregiver on Wednesday mornings from 7:45- 9:30, to checkout books from the school library. 

    - All students in all grades have access to digital resources that can be located on the left hand side of this page.

    - The Brownell Library will be holding a summer reading program with a plethora of activities and events for students to attend. Click here for more information. Library cards are free for all residents.

    - On two Wednesdays this summer, June 29 and July 27, Ms Wright, the school librarian, will bring bags of books to Maple Street Park for students to borrow.

    Have you tried this fun word game yet? Wordle is a web-based puzzle that requires players to guess a valid five-letter word in six tries or less. After each guess, the color of the tiles will change to show how close your guess was to the word.

    Here are some links to some fun Wordles to try:

  • Book Care

    Posted by Jenny Wright on 10/14/2021

    It's hard to believe that we've been in school over 7 weeks now! Students have been checking out books since the second week of school and it's great to see all the exciting book choices they are making.

    Unfortunately, we have seen an increase this year in books being damaged. We've had 5 that have been damaged by liquid and 1 that was damaged by a pet. Please review the book care expectations with your student to ensure that we have a marvelous selection of books for years to come!

  • Welcome Back!

    Posted by Jenny Wright on 9/9/2021

    It is so nice to have everyone back in the building! Classes will visit the Learning Center for their regularly scheduled class on Mondays and Fridays.

    Mondays: Cole, Jacowitz, Mahoney, Manz, Hamilton, Poncelet

    Fridays: Dall, Lee, Jacobs, Emond, Murtha, Lines

    The library is open to students every day and they can come down to return, renew, or check out new books anytime their teacher gives them permission. 

    Students have already started checking out books. Please make a plan with your family for where you will keep library books at home in order to keep them safe from damage as well as a place that you will remember to collect them each week to return them to school. 

    At this point in the year, Kindergarteners and 1st graders are checking out 1 book at a time. 2nd and 3rd graders can take out up to 3 at a time. As we build our library stamina and create a habit of returning books on time, we will increase those numbers. Library books are due 8 days after checkout, but can always be renewed for longer as long no one else is waiting on that book.
