Library

Welcome to the Wolves' Den
 
SFA features an open-access media center that serves all students with a collection of over 7,437 books.  The library is located near our kindergarten classrooms.  Grades 3K-6th have a scheduled weekly library class period.  Grades 7-8 can come to the library with their teacher or on their breaks to check out books or browse.
 
Grades 1-5 take part in the Accelerated Reader program in order to improve students' reading comprehension skills.  An equally important goal is our desire to kindle a lifelong love for reading.  Research overwhelmingly shows that students only become better readers by actually engaging in independent reading. 
 
Each January SFA host a spring Scholastic Book Fair. This is the Library's one fundraiser. Proceeds typically enable us to add 100 books to our collection.
 
 
Library Policies--
Students in 3K-5th grade are allowed to keep their book(s) for seven days. Students in 6-8th grade are allowed to keep their books for 2 weeks.  No overdue fines are charged. However, for books that are lost or damaged, the charge is the price of a replacement book.  Report cards are withheld for students failing to take responsibility for lost or damaged books at the end of the year.
