Accelerated Reader

Starting this upcoming year, students will be encouraged to reach their Accelerated Reader (AR) reading goals each six weeks.  In order for students to reach their AR goals and participate in campus incentives, students must pass a comprehensive quiz over an AR book with an 85% or higher.  The students who have met their AR reading goal will get to participate in an AR party for that grading period.

A purpose of the AR Reading Program is to encourage students to broaden their reading fluency and vocabulary, as well as challenge students to exceed their current reading levels by increasing the number of minutes and words your child reads per day.
AR quizzes are available online and may only be taken on campus Monday-Friday from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  Students may either test in the classroom or in the library throughout the day.
