Accelerated Reader Program

Accelerated Reader Program

This is a program where children read books on their level and do a computerized test (5-10 questions) on the book. They earn points for passing the test. Children can earn free books of their choice by earning a certain amount of points. We have a Reading Garden where paper flowers are placed when students meet a pre-determined amount of points. Children are recognized for their AR accomplishments-morning show, celebrations-with main reward being emphasized as a “good” feeling of a job well done.


To view a complete list of which books have AR quizzes, go to AR BookFinder Program. If you would like to see which books we have in our school library, go to Destiny, our online card catalog, and click on our school.
