Interested in learning a language? Duolingo is an app that can be used on a Smartphone or on a regular computer screen, and tests your skills in reading, writing, and speaking. It's set up sort of like a game, and you can compete against your friends to see who earns the most points! (I'm an avid user--feel free to challenge me!) If you're an English speaker, Duolingo currently offers lessons in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, French, Dutch, Danish, Irish, and German. If you're a Spanish speaker, or a speaker of a variety of other languages, you can also use it the opposite way, and hone your skills in English.
Are you a writer? Publish and illustrate your stories using Storybird and their large collection of pictures and templates to make your stories come alive on the screen.
Vocabulary.com isn't just a dictionary, but an interactive game that tests your current vocabulary knowledge and pushes you to learn more. Using a variety of pictures and text passages, this makes learning new words fun and interactive. You can sign up for a free account and represent your school! You can also download this app to your phone.

Students can check out library books, textbooks, Playaway audiobooks, and DVDs from the SRIS/VRMS Library.
Books and other library materials are due in two weeks. The due date is stamped on the checkout slip inside the cover. Regular due dates do not apply to textbooks--students can keep those at home for as long as they need, as long as they are returned by the end of the school year.
If books are overdue, students will be notified via their school Gmail account. There is late fee accrual for overdue books; however, it is necessary to pay for or replace lost books. Lost book fines may be paid in the office and the fine will be deleted from Skyward (student information system) after payment is received.
We offer only G and PG rated DVDs, and students will need to have a parental permission slip signed to check out PG movies per district policy.
Certain books with more mature content will be marked "Young Adult" for View Ridge Middle School students only. Sunset Ridge Intermediate students can check out these books with a signed parental permission slip.
