To promote better reading skills, students participate in the Accelerated Reader program. Each student will be given an independent reading goal to reach each of the four nine weeks. Students are encouraged to read independently, to a buddy, or to a parent on a daily basis. After reading a story, the student will be given a small computerized test to assess their comprehension. Students are encouraged to achieve 85% correct. Parents and students may check their scores through Renaissance Home Connect. At the end of each nine weeks, the students that achieve their goal, along with having 85% correct, will receive a small reward for their success.
