Read, Read, Read!

Reading at home with your child promotes their academic success! Did you know your child can take AR tests from a computer or even your cell phone? Email me if you would like your child's log in information. Hundreds of thousands of books have quizzes available on AR. Students will earn points and we will celebrate their accomplishments! This is for students in K-5.
