Reading

We are proud to have a wonderful collection of books in our library as well as classroom libraries.  We inspire our students to pursue a life-long love of reading.  Students have easy access to the library and are encouraged to sign out all the books that they want.  Our students gain knowledge of library and research skills as they use the library. At Iron River School all classes have a scheduled library program each week and may also access the library during the day. Books are to be renewed or turned in on time.

Book Fairs are held every November and March during the week of parent teacher interviews and student-led conferences.  The book fairs offer a wide range of books, suitable for everyone in your home.

Throughout the year students bring home Scholastic book orders so that they may purchase new books at an affordable price.  This helps develop a life-long love of reading and books, and encourages reading at home.

Celebrate Reading!

Motivating students to read is a priority for the staff of Iron River School. Throughout the year we will have literature based activities and motivational celebrations focused on encouraging students to read. We want our students to become independent readers who will read for fun, pleasure and information.
