Your student uses a software program called Renaissance at school. This is the Accelerated Reader program that allows your student to take reading comprehension tests on books they have read in order to earn reading points.
Accelerated Reading begins in 2nd grade at Brent Elementary and continues through the 4th grade. Points earned on tests will start over each year. Participating in Accelerated Reader is not required. It is up to the students to take the tests after reading books in order to earn points.
The library has point clubs for 15, 25, 50, 75 and 100 reading points. Students will receive a prize for each point club they are able to reach before the end of the year in May. Our goal is to make reading fun for students!
You may monitor your student’s Accelerated Reading progress by visiting the AR Home Connect website. Please click the AR Home Connect Tab for instructions on how to access a student's account from home.
