- Accelerated Reading Quiz Program -
Most students from Grades 3 - 6 participate in some way in the Accelerated Reader Program (A.R.) at Promontory Elementary. Many books in our library have bright pink stickers on the spines with the reading levels printed on them. The reading levels help a student find a 'just right book' within a reading zone in which he/she can be successful at reading and comprehending. Each student in grades 3 - 6 should have one 'just right' or an A.R. book he/she is reading, along with other choice books. After reading, the student logs into his /her A.R. account, selects the book he/she has read and takes a reading comprehension test. These are tracked by the A.R. program and the results are given to the teachers each month.
- Library Parent Volunteers -
We are fortunate to have the assistance of a core team of parents who provide a great service to our school, by helping in the library. We couldn't have such a successful and busy library without your help!
If you would like to help out in the library, please come and see Mr. Mueller

Typically, the public is welcome into the library but during these challenging times the library will be closed to drop visits. For this school year family account activity is moving online. Starting on Friday, September 25, parents can email me library book orders and requests. I will prepare “take home” bags of books that can be picked up at the end of the school day. Families may have up to 15 books out at one time. Books can be kept for two weeks. Please keep in mind that I cannot guarantee any title, when you submit an order a general list works much better. Once your email is read and the books are collected I will contact you for pick up. I will try my best to complete the orders in good time.
