Check out procedures

Prekindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade students may check out one book at a time. After Christmas break, students in first grade with clear library records will be allowed to check out two books. Students in 2nd grade start the year off checking out two books and move to three if their record is clear. Third-fifth graders may choose 3 books.

If a student finishes their book(s) before the next time their class goes to the library, then they may be allowed to go the the library during open checkout times with a pass from their teacher. Open checkout is every day from 8:15 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Bluebonnet award program

The Bluebonnet Award is given out each year to a book that students in grades 3-6 across Texas vote as their favorite from a list of 20. Students can win prizes from Mrs. Ray for reading these books independently and answering questions about the book. Students who read at least 5 books on the Bluebonnet list will be invited to a party and allowed to vote in January.

Six Flags reading program

All students at Bradfield have been given the opportunity to read six hours to earn a ticket to Six Flags. Just read on your own or with a family member. Write the times you read on your reading log and have your parent sign it. Make sure the times on your log add up to six hours.

Braum's book buddy

This year Braum's has partnered with Bradfield to offer a reading incentive. Students earn stickers for books read and then after 6 stickers they can earn an ice cream treat.
