Do you sometimes wonder what the AR rules are? Like can your child take a quiz after watching a movie? Click here for an 
Accelerated Reader Code of Conduct.

Your child can earn DOG TAGS for reading accomplishments.  For every 100 points earned there is a dog bone. Students also earn dog tags based on Star Reading test results for being on or above grade level after each semester and for making a year's worth of reading growth at the end of the year. Book award dog tags include the Caldecott, Newbery, GA Storybook and GA Chapter book. There is a dog tag given for reading and quizzing on nine different literary genres. Students earning the most points in their class each semester earn a dog tag. And the student earning the most points in the school each year receives $100!!!
Along with the Dog Tags. We have a new Schoolwide AR Program being implemented this year! These prizees are given out once a month when teachers send their envelope to the media center. The prizes are then put in the envelope and returned to the teacher to hand out to the students!
