Accelerated Reader Program!

We will have rewards for AR this year.

We will have the AR store where you can spend your points every nine weeks. You will spend them during your library time.

We will have the AR popcorn and coke parties this year. The parties will be every 9 weeks. The parties will be based on points according to every child’s personal goals. At the end of the year we will be giving away bicycles for the most AR points and bookcases and kindles for the students with the most reading growth.

If you have books at home and need to know what AR level they are you can go to the following site.
