Library Program

The library program fosters the enjoyment and appreciation of literature with an intentional focus on introducing books featuring diverse cultures and traditions. The program also provides opportunities for guided inquiry where students find, evaluate, synthesize, create and share information efficiently, effectively, and ethically. Students in grades PreK – 6 have scheduled weekly library classes.

Kelsey's Charles River School Point of View

I love to develop curriculum that integrates literature with STEAM to spark curiosity, foster inquiry, and inspires students to make meaningful connections.

Summer Reading

Whether children are reading on their own or with a parent, CRS encourages students to continue the habit of reading throughout the summer months. Below, you will find lists of recommended books for each grade level – these lists are intended as recommendations and are in no way exhaustive. 

In addition, students entering grades 3- 8 have summer reading assignments prepared by their classroom teachers.  On this page, you will find links to the assignments.
