AR Reminder

Reminder, this coming Friday, September 29th, will be the end of the 1st Six Weeks.  Don’t forget that AR (Accelerated Reader) requirements must be completed by 4:00pm on Friday.  I’ve attached the link to the AR document the students and parents signed the first week of school for a reminder of requirements and rewards for achieving the goals.  Tomorrow, students will receive a paper from Renaissance Home Connect giving you information on how to log into AR to check your child’s progress.   Please let me know if you have any questions.

CJH 6th-8th grade Accelerated Reader Program 2017-2018

Student Expectations:

*Students will take the StarChart Test to assess reading levels at the beginning of both semesters.

*Students will read 2 books per six weeks OR 1 with 300+pages. (Books must be close to or above grade level and must have teacher approval.)

Grading Policy:

*This assignment will count as 2 test grades per six weeks.

*Students will have until 4PM on the last day of the six weeks to take a test.

*The grades entered in the gradebook will be the highest grades received on AR tests that six weeks.  There are 2 AR grades, so if the child reads one book over 300 pages, that grade will count twice.

**NOTE: These grades will be entered into the gradebook one week prior to the end of each six weeks. This will allow parents to see where their children are in meeting their AR requirements for that six weeks. Grades can still be changed during the last week of each six weeks.  AR may affect the student’s grade negatively or positively based on their performance, however, the teachers are allowing students EVERY POSSIBLE OPPORTUNITY to complete this assignment.


Six Weeks Goal-Grade Level Goals

The student reads the following amount of words in a six weeks:

*6th grade – 100,000

*7th grade – 125,000

*8th grade – 175,000

If they reach this goal, they will be invited to an AR party for that six weeks.  Each six weeks the prize will be different.  The first six weeks we will have a coke float party.
