The fifth grade goal for AR points is usually ten points per month. Some months may vary depending on how many days we have school that month. For example, the expected points will be adjusted for December, due to not being in school for the entire month. Students were provided with AR logins and passwords this week (August 21st.) Since we are already this far into August, the months of August and September will be combined. So, your child will need at least ten AR points by September 29th. Students are encouraged to read at home for at least thirty minutes per day. Part of your child's reading grade will include scores from their AR quizzes taken during the grading period. So, it will be important for your child to read often and to pick books he or she can comprehend. Many books are AR books. To find out if a book is an AR book or not, go to http:www.arbookfind.com.
