GOALS AND POINTS
Most books in our school library have an AR test available. Those books are marked to show they have a test. Ask your librarian for more details.
Each book has a point value which is the maximum number of points that can be earned from that book if the student scores a 100% on the quiz.
DOES MY CHILD HAVE TO ANSWER EVERY QUESTION CORRECTLY TO GET POINTS?
WHAT ARE GRADE LEVEL GOALS?
****To be eligible for end-of-the-year prizes students in grades 1st - 4th must maintain a minimum test average of 75%****
