Dry Creek’s library is designed to make reading a joy! Students are invited to select books weekly from our nearly 20,000 volumes. Books and materials are due two weeks after check out, though no overdue fines are ever levied. If books are lost, please ask for the price. We are pleased to participate in the Cherry Creek School District's Overdrive electronic book program as well.  Five ebooks can be downloaded at a time for a duration of three weeks. Start your child on a lifelong library habit by encouraging enthusiastic and responsible library usage!



Program Philosophy

The library media program at Dry Creek is a "one of a kind" program that aims to provide enrichment and extension of classroom curriculum through individualized, alternative instruction. The media para educators and nearly thirty volunteers staff the program.



The Program


Dove Creek (1 book per week)

Students attend weekly sessions that teach literature, beginning reading skills, and spelling.


Fox Creek (3 books per week plus a book bag)

Students attend two weekly literature sessions; these classes cover the top authors of children’s literature. Parent volunteers help each individual reading group with the story and follow-up activity.  


Students participate in the SRA individualized reading program. This program teaches phonics, comprehension and vocabulary. Parent volunteers help each student individually with this program.


Bear Creek (7 books per week, 3 regular and 4 Accelerated Reader)

Students attend two weekly literature sessions.  This program is similar to the first grade program only with the literature appropriate to second grade.  


Bear Creek participates in Accelerated Reader weekly. Students select four paperback books from a special reading level collection (level is designated by the homeroom teacher). The level is easier than the instructional level, so children learn to read with more fluency.                        


Beaver Creek (5 books per week)

Students attend a weekly literature session.  Library skills units are also taught during this time slot.         


Beaver Creek participates in Accelerated Reading. In this program students select books from a collection of over 1,100 titles, read them, and take a computerized quiz on the book. They accumulate points based on the difficulty and length of each book. These points can then be redeemed at the Prize Store, which is supported by the PTCO & manned by parent volunteers. This program is very effective in improving comprehension skills and vocabulary.

Elk Creek (5 books per week)

Elk Creek participates in Accelerated reading.  Students attend weekly sessions that alternate between literature comprehension and SRA invidualized reading program.  Library skills units are also taught during this time slot.

Wolf Creek (5 books per week)

Wolf Creek students attend weekly sessions.  The program includes library skills and research projects which provide enrichment and extensions of classroom curriculum.
