This year your child will participate in the Accelerated Reading Program. National statistics prove that participation in an AR program will help your student become a better reader by building fluency, stamina and comprehension. It is my hope that every student will increase their reading level by the end of the school year.
Please note that AR is counted as a test grade, so please familiarize yourself with my procedures explained below:
At the beginning of each grading period, your child will receive a new AR Reading Log, which will be kept in the students’ binder. Each Friday, I check Reading Logs for entries and parent signatures. Each student is given an update on their progress so they know how many points they have earned and how many points they need in order to meet their personal goal by the end of the grading period.
Please make sure that your child is reading at least 30 minutes every night. Monitor and sign the Reading Log at least once a week to ensure that your child is making progress.
I look forward to partnering with you to help your child become a successful student this school year. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
