Accelerated Reader Update

At Wallace Gregg Elementary School, students are encouraged to take at least one Accelerated Reader test each week. For students in grades 1-6, students receive a G,S,U on their report card in the subject labeled Reading Renaissance each nine weeks. Most of the books in our school and classroom libraries are Accelerated Reader books. This gives students the opportunity to read and earn points for prizes that are distributed at the end of the month. Reading should be enjoyable and fun. The goal is for the students to read for at least 100 minutes per week. Check out the Accelerated Reader stats for the month of February. Our students met their reading goal by reading on average more than 20 minutes a day. WGE is looking forward to this data to continue to grow as the school year progresses. Remember to encourage your child to read each night for 20 minutes.

Please click the link above to read the information regarding student attendance.
