HOME ACCESS

One of the most powerful features of our Accelerated Reader program is the Home Connect portion. From your house you may see your child’s progress toward their reading goals, conduct book searches using the AR Bookfinder, review results of AR quizzes, sign up for email notification on your child’s quizzes, and much, much more.

AR GOALS

It is our desire to create reading goals for our students that are more individualized in their approach instead of grade level goals. Because we know that children work at different levels, it is important to have a program that continues to challenge our students the entire year, not just until their goals have been reached.

The teacher will also use STAR Reading report, previous AR points earned, and ERB scores to help create student goals. Goals will be communicated to the parents during the parent/teacher conference held at the end of the first grading quarter. Parents will be given the opportunity to discuss the established goal at this time. The minimum point requirements will be as follows:

1st Grade – 20 points

2nd Grade – 30 points

3rd Grade – 40 points

4th Grade – 50 points

5th Grade – 60 points
