Don't forget, each night your child should read for at least 20 minutes to keep up with their AR goal. However, I completely understand that your child may have activities after school, so make sure you pick up missed time on the weekend.
We will have a reward party at the end of the nine weeks for those students who are at 100% of their AR goal and 88% correct on TESTS.
AR will count as 10% of your child's reading grade each nine weeks.
Congrats to the following Students who are at or ABOVE 10% of their AR Goal:
