Accelerated Reader

Your child should be at 80% of their Accelerated Reader goal by Friday, October 3rd.

***Please remember, your child is NOT required to read every night! They need to keep up with their weekly reading goal.

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 70% of their AR Goal:






CONGRATS to Kellan and Aubree who are OVER 100% of their AR goal! :)

Spelling List for next week

We will take a pre-test each Monday morning. If your child passes the regular list words, they will be put on the AMAZING word list for the week and test on Friday. If your child makes the AMAZING list, they will be required to do different spelling work with the new list. This may appear differently in the gradebook, so if you see a blank for a spelling activity, that would be why.
