Library Media Center

It is the goal of the Saucier Elementary School Library Media Center to:

  1. Improve reading skills and comprehension
  2. Develop an appreciation for books
  3. Help students become lifelong readers

    The library will support the curriculum by collaborating with teachers, developing a collection that is representative of the community, and implementing literacy instruction for students.

    Students at Saucier Elementary participate in the Accelerated Reader Program.  Each nine weeks, students must reach the AR goal set for them by reaching 85% accuracy and meeting the number of assigned points.  The librarian, with support from the AR committee promotes participation in the Accelerated Reader Program.
