Accelerated Reader (AR)

AR is a nightly reading program.  Students set AR goals with their teacher based on 20 minutes of nightly reading at home.  Nightly reading is essential for student progress.  Encourage your child to read to you each night.  The AR book they bring home will be a book that is “just right” for them.  Your child should be able to read the book with little assistance.  We host AR parties for all students that reach their AR goals.  AR goals are reached when the student takes a number of quizzes and performs with 70% or higher average score over a nine week period.  AR goals are set with the teacher each nine week period.
