Accelerated Reader

Making the Connection!

Dear CCA Parents,

We are very excited that you will soon begin using Renaissance Home Connect as a way of monitoring and encouraging your child's AR reading progress from home. This resource gives you a snapshot or your child's overall progress in AR, including average percent correct on quizzes, number of points earned, and results on the last quiz. This online tool also gives you the option to receive email notifications at home or work when your child has completed an Accelerated Reader quiz. The View My Bookshelf screen allows you to see all the books your child has tested on, and when you click on the book cover you can view details on the book such as: book level, possible points available, and more!

Renaissance Home Connect also features the AR BookFinder link. This link is our new online search tool that makes it easy for you and your child to search for their next AR book to read. Your child can test on books from our school library, classroom, home, or local public library. With access to over 125,000 AR quizzes, searching for the right book has never been easier! Be sure to visit this link to see if your book has a test.

Please find the attached Renaissance Home Connect Informational Letter. This letter explains how to access Home Connect and provides you with your child's AR username along with their new and secured password. Your child will be using this username and new password to take their AR quizzes at school.

Together we all share one common goal in trying to help your child become lifelong learners who love to read. In order for us to achieve this, we must stay connected and Renaissance Home Connect is helping us do just that. Keep informed about your child's reading progress and ask your child's teacher and librarian about ways they can help.

In His Service,

The CCA Elementary Staff
