 Daily Folders

Please remember to have your child bring his/her blue folder to school every day. 

Please remember to sign your child’s AR reading log located in the back of the blue daily folder.  Every student should be reading an AR book(s) of his/her choice weekly so he/she can meet his/her goal for the second nine weeks. AR points are earned by taking tests at school on books he/she has read on his/her level or above and earning at least 80%. Students can take AR tests on books from our classroom library, school library, public library, or books from home as long as they are AR and on or above his/her reading level.
