@ The Schmitz Park Library

With Ms. Vannini

This is the plan...

My goal is to provide you, the parent of our students, with monthly information about tech resources, literacy support and the latest news in the library.

Using myOn at Home

What is myOn?

myON reader is the first-of-its-kind personalized literacy environment that integrates technology, reading levels and students’ ability to match their reading level and preferred choice of books into one online reading program.

In addition to implementing myON reader, we are excited to give you the opportunity to learn new ways to enhance your child(ren)’s reading experience and spend time reviewing curriculum topics, building reading stamina and increasing comprehension.

We hope you find this program as exciting as we do, and will join us in making myON reader a success!

How does myOn work?

MyOn enables anytime, anywhere access to digital books that students can read, rate, and review. Through embedded assesments, and of book quizzes, and benchmark quizzes, myOn allows teachers, students and families to monitor, track and measure student reading growth.

Please see the links below for family and parent user guides.
