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 who have lost books will be charged a replacement fine through the FACTS account. Students may not check out books until books are returned and fines are paid.
You can access the library system here: Wynnbrook Christian School Library
You can search the catalog or LOG IN (located in the upper right corner)

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. Students can only quiz on books at school. Quizzes taken at home will be deleted.

Field trips that expand and enhance the curriculum are arranged each year. Field trips enable teachers to expand children’s learning beyond the walls of the classroom into the vast community outside. A field trip is like a living laboratory in which learning is acquired through hands-on experiences within the rich resources of the local community. They provide children with experiences that cannot be duplicated in the school but are nonetheless an integral part of school instruction.
At Wynnbrook Christian School, teachers should integrate field trips with the curriculum, in part, by carefully selecting activities for students to do before, during and after the trip. Completion of learning activities will be required of all students. Ideally, there should be a field-trip planned every nine weeks. Field trips should be related to the unit under study.
