Welcome to the

Vernon Middle School Library!

Library News

The VMS Book Club is collecting gently used books to place in the waiting rooms of hospitals and doctors offices in our area.  If you are able to contribute to this service project, please send the books to school with your child.  There will be a collection box in the library.  Thank you!           


  • Accelerated Reading
    Accelerated Reader is a reading program designed to encourage and promote successful reading.  It helps students to track their reading comprehension by providing them with the tools to measure their improvement.  AR places the focus on the careful reading of books, which in turn promotes critical thinking.
  • Accelerated Math
    Vernon Middle School uses Accelerated math to give students individual math practice to accelerate their math learning. Students are assigned weekly objectives that are either aligned to classrooms teaching or skills in which the students need more practice. After completing a worksheet on the assigned practice, students enter their answers on the computer and have immediate feedback on the scoring. Depending on their score, the program will print the next practice.

What's New

At Vernon Middle School, we strive to promote personal responsibility of our students.  Therefore, a five-cent fee will be charged for every day a book is late.  Until the child's account is cleared, either through returning the books, paying the fine, or both, your child may not continue to check out books from the library.  There are other books available for your child to read while the account is being cleared.
