Accelerated Reading

All students in 2nd grade participate in the Accelerated Reading Program. 

Students in 1st grade may enter the program when they reach a level of independent reading determined by our Reading Assessment Test.
 

Accelerated Reader is a program that was designed to give students practice in reading and to develop a lifelong love of reading.  

The children check out Library books from the Library or books from a classroom library and read them at home or during Sustained Silent Reading.  Students may take tests in the Computer Lab before school, beginning at 7:20, during 2nd grade recess, during Library or at 2:40 in the afternoon (1st graders only).  

The program keeps track of the points earned.  Points are used to reward students with positive incentives. For every 5 points a student earns, he/she receives a “book bead”. Also, each student is given a goal each 9-weeks. All students reaching their goals by the end of the 9-week period may attend a  school-wide activity. Students reaching their goals twice during the year may attend the Big Kahuna in May.

Dolch Words

Dolch Words

Dolch words, or sight words, provide an excellent base for reading at an early age. They are often called sight words because some of them can't be sounded out, 

and need to be learned by sight. Note that all the Dolch words can be taught before children finish the first grade in school. Words in the second and third grade

lists are more common in books for those age groups, but they do appear in books for earlier grades,  just less frequently.

Community Coffee Cash For Schools Program

ATTENTION PARENTS DEAR PARENTS:

We’re excited to be kicking off our annual Community Cash For Schools® program. This year’s goal is to exceed our results of last year’s Community Cash For Schools® program. In order to achieve this goal, we need each family to collect Proofs of Purchase from eligible Community® products. If every family can collect 6-10 Community® product Proofs of Purchase per month, we are sure to grow the amount earned for our school. A successful Community Cash for Schools® program depends on you and your support.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS:

SAVE :  Save Proofs of Purchase from all Community® and Private Reserve® products available at the locations listed below: Grocery Stores, Supermarkets & Other Participating Retail Outlets

                 

  • All coffee products, tea products, creamer, sugar and coffee filters contain eligible Proofs of Purchase. Restaurants, Hotels, Offices &                          Businesses

  • Boxes of coffee and coffee related products delivered to restaurants, hotels and other businesses contain high value Proofs of Purchase.

 

SUBMIT:  Collect your Community® Proofs of Purchase and check with your child’s teacher for the submission deadline. Once we submit all our Proofs of Purchase, Community Coffee Company will issue us a check which we can spend on whatever we feel is the best use for the money!

REMEMBER The more Community® and Private Reserve® product Proofs of Purchase you collect, the more cash our school can earn!

 

These funds are used to support the Accelerated Reader Program & to purchase books for our library.

YOUR SUPPORT AND PARTICIPATION IS OUR KEY TO SUCCESS! THANKS FOR ALL THAT YOU DO TO HELP US!
