Wynnbrook Christian School Library

Are you curious about what books are available in our library? You can search our catalog from home. You can also check what books your child currently has checked out. Students have a personal account and can access their account on line. Students can check out three books at a time and have two weeks until the book is due. Students have three days of grace before fines are calculated to the account. Students may not check out books until books are returned and fines are paid.

Track Student's Quizzes with AR

Our school uses Accelerated Reader for tracking student reading progress. Students are STAR tested through the Renaissance Learning Website  and are given a reading level to read within. Each student logs into their own account and can take quizzes on the books that are read. Students receive a grade and points with each quiz taken which is sent to the teacher. Parents can also receive emails on their child’s quizzes to track their progress. Encourage students to read on their reading level. Poor quiz grades may not be deleted.

Parents can log in to Renaissance Home Connect from any computer with an Internet connection and compatible browser. If you'd like to receive emails showing your student's quiz or test results, click the Email Setup link and follow the directions. To be sure these emails reach your inbox, add homeconnectautodelivery@renlearnrp.com to your address book. The log-in information is the same your child uses at school to take AR quizzes. If you have questions about Renaissance Home Connect, please call the school office.
