AR Kick Off!

Posted on 09/03/2019

Increasing student achievement in literacy continues to be a main focus of our media center program this year. Each child has an individual reading level target. Our goal is for every child to reach and surpass these targets by the end of the school year to be sure they are prepared for the next grade level. Accelerated Reader begins Friday, September 6, 2019, for grades 1st-5th. Accelerated Reader (AR) is a computerized reading program that test reading comprehension. Students select books from our media center based on their reading level, read independently, and take an independent comprehension test using the AR platform. Each book is worth a certain number of points based on its length and reading level. Students are to read and pass each AR book with 85% or higher. Two incentive programs have been created by our media specialist that rewards students for their reading achievements. Reading is an important predictor of future academic success. Our combined efforts at school and home will ensure students maximize their reading potential.
