Mission Statement

The goal of the library is to ensure that staff and students are effective users of ideas and information. We emphasize literature so that students become lifelong readers. Our goal is to help all children see themselves as effective readers who can become independent readers. Literacy enrichment in the library supports the  Open Court Reading program. Integrated in this program is 6-Traits Writing Model.

All students visit the school library weekly for library instruction, story and book selection. We encourage students to choose one book at their reading level. Non-fiction materials are encouraged to broaden learning styles and interests.

HealthierUS School Challenge Winners!

Irene Reither Primary (Bronze)

Ten Mile Creek Elementary School (Bronze)


Ten Mile and Irene ReitherPrimary Schools are making national news by working to support and improve the health of our children and our community. As part of their effort, healthy items are featured on their menus and physical education and activity emphasized. Their efforts are part of the HealthierUS School Challenge.

The HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) is a voluntary national certification initiative for schools participating in the National School Lunch Program.  It supports First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign by recognizing schools that are creating healthier school environments through their promotion of good nutrition and physical activity.  Sponsored by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), the initiative encourages all schools take a leadership role in helping students to make healthier eating and physical activity choices that will last a lifetime.  Schools, such as Ten Mile and Irene ReitherPrimary, that champion the HUSSC work hard to make changes to their school nutrition environment in order to (1) improve the quality of the foods served, (2) provide students with nutrition education, and (3) provide students with physical education and opportunities for physical activity.  The Ten Mile and Irene ReitherPrimary School qualified for the Bronze. Schools awarded receive a monetary incentive (Bronze $500 an award plaque signed by a USDA official, a banner to display in their school, and their name listed on the Team Nutrition Web site.

 To qualify for an award, a school must submit a formal application and meet basic criteria set forth by the FNS.  The HUSSC criteria reflect the recommendations of the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) published recommendations (April 2007) for foods that should be served in schools, outside of the organized school lunch meals.  HealthierUS Schools must also have a local school wellness policy, as mandated by Congress.  Schools receiving a HUSSC award commit to meeting the criteria throughout their four year certification period.
