AR Books: The 6th grade students are required to read books each week based on their reading levels. After taking the STAR test, each student is required to earn points based on his or her reading level and maintain an 85% average or higher. Each child’s weekly goal will vary. Your child will receive two grades for AR- test and daily grades. The total number of points earned will be used as a test grade and the final percentage of all books read will be used as a daily grade. These books should be read at home and school daily. The deadline for the 4th nine weeks is Friday, May 17, 2019. Please adhere to the deadline. AR Alerts will be sent to parents throughout the nine weeks as an update on your child’s progress. You will also be able to log into Renaissance Home Connect from any computer with an internet connection. This will give you the opportunity to monitor your child’s AR progress. These books are mandatory!
