Each year, the top point earners from each grade are taken on an Accelerated Reader Field Trip.  The following are the guidelines:

1. The top ten point earners from 1st grade, top ten point earners from 2nd grade, and the top twenty point earners from 3rd and 4th grade combined are invited to attend the trip.

2.  Students must have at least 85% correct to be considered for the trip.

3.  Students must return permission forms by the deadline to attend the trip.

4.  Any student caught cheating in Accelerated Reader will automatically be disqualified from the trip.

 


 

Accelerated Reader Home Connect

We now have Renaissance Enterprise available at our school which means that students have access to ALL Accelerated Reader tests that are currently available from the company renlearn.  To see if there is a test available log on to Home Connect (https://Hosted207.renlearn.com/87475/HomeConnect/Login.aspx)

or click on the picture of the computer above.  Log in with your child's username and password (We sent this home in a letter, but if you have forgotten it is the same username and password that your child uses to login to take a test at school.).  Go to BOOKFINDER.  Type in the name of the book and it will show the information if we have that quiz available.   This is also where you can log on to see your child's percent correct (Our goal is to be above 85%), AR points, and book level.  You can view what quizzes your child has already taken by looking at his/her bookshelf.  You can also sign up for email alerts that will notify you when your child takes a AR test and what they make on that AR test.
