*The Accelerated Reader (AR) program is designed to promote reading. Students are required to take the STAR. test during the first few weeks of school. This test determines the students' reading level. The student is informed of their reading range and will select library books in their range. After reading a book, the student takes a test on the computer about the book. Teachers will set individual reading goals according to the students' reading range. Students who meet their goal will be rewarded each nine weeks. Log on to Home Connect to view your child's progress!
