Accelerated Reader points are totaled at the end of every week. Students will be able to record their points on a chart in the classroom every Friday. When students reach increments of 5, they will get to change their popcorn piece in the hallway. The AR requirement is 15 points per quarter. Each child should be reading for 15+ minutes at home each night. Students will also be reading throughout the school day. Students will be able to become members of AR Clubs once they earn 50+ AR points. There is an AR Club for each increment of 50, all the way to 300!
