The first – eighth graders are participating in an AR National Challenge that
begins on January 29
. Any elementary LCMS school in the United States and Canada that is presently using the Accelerated Reader program may enter the contest. LCMS elementary schools from California all the way down to Florida are participating. Students that are participating must be independent readers.
The purpose of this challenge is to provide an incentive and motivation for our children at Lutheran schools to read more, get smarter, and have fun. Reading for this contest can occur anywhere the children are – at home, at school, in the car, etc. All reporting of points will be done by each school’s coordinator via the AR Challenge web site. Mrs. Baker is our school AR coordinator. Each week she will be responsible for reporting the total points that each grade level/division has earned. March 9 is our cutoff date for the AR Challenge.
Last year we took second place overall.
This year Ms. Gromowski challenges us to take
place. We can do this, students. Get reading!
