Our District has purchased Accelerated Reader for our students to use daily. Accelerated Reader (AR) is a program designed to encourage students to read. Accelerated Reader is a computer software program designed to assess reading comprehension and reward students for reading success. Students select and read an Accelerated Reader book. Students take an Accelerated Reader Quiz on a school computer. (Each quiz is worth a number of points depending on the difficulty level of the book. Points are accumulated by answering more than 60% of the questions correctly). Students are rewarded for accumulation of Accelerated Reader Points.
Our theme for AR is “Accelerated Reader Wall of Fame”. As the students read and accumulate points they will get prizes based on the point system set. The students that also read the required points for the “AR Wall of Fame” will have their picture or name posted.
Please encourage your child to read and remember “Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.” Joseph Addison
