Update as of January 19,2021** Starting Jan.20,2021, our district will be participating in a Flex day every wednesday. Students will be dismissed around 11:30 am and will be fed brunch. The school will be providing transportation,unless you choose for your child to be a car rider. If your child will need to ride the bus this day and is normally a car rider, please let the front office and I know so that we can send home a bus form to fill out. **
Please make sure your child is reading their AR book nightly.
Our library checkout days have changed due to COVID. I will keep you updated on our check-out days once a procedure is put into place.
Please make sure that your child has their book at school throughout the week so that they are able to check out a new book once the time comes. You can check their progress for AR at home through their Accelerated Reader account. They should never have below 90% average of accuracy on AR tests. If they are below 90%, they are at risk of not meeting their AR goal for the nine weeks. Please make sure your child is taking at least 2 tests a week at school and reading their book regularly at home.

Resources for Reading:
Please use this class code gup4140 at https://www.getepic.com/students and start using Epic, our digital library. This is a fun place for students read extra books or even watch educational videos. You will find that most of these books are AR books.
If open due to COVID- I highly encourage letting your child check out AR books from the public library. Please make sure they are getting books that are appropriate for their Reading Level. If you are unsure of their reading level, please contact me through email or Remind and I will let you know.
You can get on ARbookfind.com to check book point values, reading levels, etc. This website will allow you to find out if the book is an AR book. **Not all books are in the AR system.
