Welcome to the Shikellamy Middle School Library!
The library contains a generous collection of fiction and non-fiction for student use. The entire school has 15 minutes of silent reading daily. Reading is encouraged at Shikellamy Middle School.
Students are not required to check books out of the library, but they are required to have reading materials with them throughout the school day.
The library is in use for scheduled classes daily periods 1-2-3. Other classes may be scheduled Days A-C-E, when Mrs. Shemory is scheduled to be here all day.
On days when no classes are scheduled, students may choose to come to the library for silent study, computer use, and recreational reading.
Communication Arts and Reading classes participate in Accelerated Reader. More information is available by clicking on that tab.
for Shikellamy Middle School Students
Students may take Accelerated Reader quizzes any time the library is open, or with their communication Arts (7th & 8th grade students) or Reading teacher (6th grade students).
AR is a program monitors a student’s independent reading. Students pick a book, and take a quiz when they finish reading the book. Passing the quiz indicates the student both read and understood what they read. Most quizzes are ten questions, some longer books may have twenty question quizzes.
Accelerated Reader goals for each marking period are set by the Language Arts teachers. Questions regarding grading policies should be directed to the classroom teacher.
