Accelerated Reader Program
Accelerated Reader is a supplemental reading program used to help strengthen student reading and comprehension skills. Three times a year, students will take the STAR Reading Assessment. This assessment will provide a reading range for each student. Students are required to read three books a nine weeks within his or her individualized reading range. The School Library Media Staff and English teachers can provide grade level specific information. In order to make it easier for students to find books within their ranges, the library staff and parent volunteers (thank you) have color-coded the books. Please consult the color code to determine our color system. A.R. Bookfind is a wonderful tool to check reading levels and Accelerated Reader availability of books in your homes.
