Accelerated Reader (AR) Accelerated Reader is a reading incentive program based in Renaissance Learning’s “AR” application. Using classroom tablets or Media Center PC’s, 4th & 5th grade students take comprehension tests on books they have read and are rewarded points for tests passed with at least 80% correct answers. Points can be used to purchase items from the “AR Store” held in the media center twice a year: in January/February and again in May.One of the items students may purchase (once a year per student) is a ticket to a Pizza Luncheon, also held in the Media Center.
If your student purchases a ticket to the AR luncheon, a note will come home to you prior to the event, so you know not to send a lunch with them the day of the lunch.
AR Store: Friday, May 17 AR Lunch: Friday, May 24 **** there will be only one store/lunch this year due to only 4 classrooms participating*** *Starting with the 2018-2019 school year, Accelerated Reader will be used by only 4th and 5th grade students. Grades K-3 will use the reading incentive program called Reading Eggs, however, there are no plans for a PTO sponsored incentive program for this program.
