iCommons: Book Check-Out for the School Break
Karla Veras | Librarian

As the school year comes to a close and school break approaches, many students may be looking forward to a break from homework, classes, and studying. However, it is important for students of all ages to continue reading during school break.

Reading regularly can help students build their vocabulary, improve their reading comprehension, and develop critical thinking skills. It can expose students to new ideas, perspectives, and experiences, which can help them become more empathetic and open-minded. Additionally, reading can be a fun and enjoyable way for students to spend their free time and can help foster a lifelong love of learning.

To help parents/guardians with this mission to keep kids reading, the iCommons invites you to come to school to check out books from May 29th to June 6th.

  • Lower School Parents will be sent an email to sign up, selecting a day and time to visit the LS iCommons 
  • Upper School Parents can contact us by email ( informing us a day and time to visit the US iCommons

*ALL students will check out books for the school break during their regular iCommons visits.

** Students need to return all the books to be able to get new ones.

  • Upper School Students and Parents can check out up to 10 books.
  • Lower School Students and Parents can check out up to 14 books.

On those days, please send bags so kids can carry the books they will freely select.

Enjoy the break! And keep reading!
