How can I help my child be successful in our Holiday Park Reading Initiative?
Read together and make reading at home a priority. Help your children pick books that are “just right” and encourage them to take AR Tests to earn points for them as individuals, homeroom, grade level, and school! Check Renaissance Home Connect to monitor your child’s progress in the Accelerated Reader Program. The links below can help you better understand the AR program and can answer any questions you may have. In addition, there are links to help you search and find specific AR books!
What is the Hall of Fame Criteria for the 2016-2017 school year?
The Hall of Fame is for elite readers that have achieved and completed a goal of Accelerated Reader points for their specific grade level. Points are set at the mid year mark in January after reviewing a whole school report on the AR system. Students have from the beginning of the year until May 19th to complete this challenge.
K = 50 points accumulated from the beginning of the year to May 19th.
1-2 = 100 points accumulated from the beginning of the year to May 19th.
3-4 = 200 points accumulated from the beginning of the year to May 19th.
5-6 = 400 points from the beginning of the year to May 19th.
Remember, the deadline is Friday, May 19th at the end of the school day.
