Red Ribbon Week

Leader in Me

We are a Leader in Me school. Leader in Me is an operative system that unites students, staff, and families around a common goal to prepare students with college, career, and life-readiness skills that are necessary to thrive in today's ever-changing, fast paced environment.

At the beginning of the year, we focus on leadership roles, mission statements, Wildly Important Goals (WIGs), and leadership notebooks.

In November, students will focus on Habit 3: Put First Things First, Paradigm 2: Everyone has Genius, and Trust Behavior 2: Demonstrate Respect.

Accelerated Reader

Reading 20-30 minutes daily is recommended for students. After meeting an AR goal, students are encouraged to continue taking AR tests as often as possible to try to reach the grade level target word count and become a millionaire by reading a million words by May.

Below are the word count targets:
Prek - 25,000 words

Kindergarten - 50,000 words

First - 100,000 words

Second - 250,000 words

Third - 500,000 words

Fourth and fifth - 1,000,000 words

Congratulations to the students who met their AR goal with an 85% or higher during the 2nd six weeks!
