Accelerated Reading Information
AR will maintain the point values this year. WE will continue awarding tags to be collected on a chain as incentives this year. I will discuss these policies with all 3rd thru 5th grade classes starting in September. We will continue to accumulate points until sometime in May . I will let you know when the system is up and ready for students to take tests. Here are the goals for this year.
3rd grade – 15 points per 9 weeks
4th grade – 20 points per 9 weeks
5th grade – 25 points per 9 weeks
At the end of every 9 week grading period there will be an assembly to honor all students who meet their goal. All 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will assemble in the gym for an AR assembly. Students who meet their goal for the first time will receive a chain and a tag for the first 9 weeks. The next time they meet their goal, a new tag will be given.
3rd grade -- 60 points
4th grade -- 80 points
5th grade -- 100 points
*** For students who have a modified goal, teachers will need to let me know quarterly if goals have been met. These students will receive tags according to their individual goals.
JP Events & Consulting has offered to provide incentives for our reading program this year. At the end of every quarter, every student who reaches their goal will have their name entered into a drawing and 1 student will receive a gift card to spend at one of the stores in the Wegmans shopping center. At the end of the year, 1 boy and 1 girl who reach their yearly goal will be picked to receive a free bike.
