Grace Prep Library

The Grace Prep Library is a very busy place! On any given day, you may find our elementary librarian, Mrs. Harvick, reading to our primary classes, enrolling our students in a variety of reading programs, helping a high school student find a needed resource for a research project or writing assignment, or just providing a place for a student, parent, or teacher to enjoy a quiet moment away from the busyness of the day.  Grace Prep is committed to growing stronger families and stronger students by providing a wide variety of materials that may be borrowed for use at home and then returned to the library.

Every year money raised from sales at the Scholastic Book Fair goes to support the library and to provide for the purchase of updated resources for Grace Prep students and families to use.  We are so grateful to the many parents who help organize and support the Scholastic Book Fair every year.

Come see us in the library! We would love to have you!

Blue and Gold Reading Program

Welcome to our Blue and Gold reading program! Our elementary English teachers have developed these reading lists to expose your student to a variety of genres and thus foster a love of reading. Students are also given an opportunity to respond to and “own” what they have learned through a variety of assessments.

Grades K-2: the Blue and Gold program begins in the fall during the regular school year. Details regarding the program for these grade levels will be posted on the website after school has begun.

Blue and Gold assessments – Kindergarten
Blue and Gold assessments – 1st grade
Blue and Gold assessments – 2nd grade

Grades 3-5:
Students are encouraged to begin reading the Blue and Gold books during the summer. Copies of the Blue and Gold books for grades 3-5 are available for check-out through the GPA library during the school year. All assessment formats for grades 3-5 are listed below. Simply hover your cursor over the name of the assessment your student wishes to use and open it. Download it and print it off. Once your student has completed it, simply keep it until school begins.  Make sure their name is on their assessment. Your student may turn it in the first week of school.

Assessment formats:
Glossary Assessment
Novel Assessment
Graphic Organizer for Nonfiction
Artistic Book Assessments
Venn Diagram Assessment

Grade 6: Students are encouraged to begin reading the Blue and Gold books throughout the summer. However, formal book report assessments will be required during the school year- one per six weeks. These will be handed out and explained during the school year. Copies of the Blue and Gold books for 6th grade are available for check-out through the GPA library during the school year.
