    ACCELERATED READER GRADING

    Students in grades 3 through 8 participate in the Accelerated Reader program.  Students read a variety of books and take a computerized comprehension test. AR is 10% of students’ reading grade.  In addition, students who meet or exceed points attend an Ice Cream Social to celebrate their success.  See below for a breakdown of requirements to attend/qualify.
