Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge

Research has shown that when students do not read during the summer months, they regress and lose reading skills over the summer. Anderson is encouraging students to read over the summer by letting students participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading program. Student are currently logging in to the program now at school and will be ready to log in and participate when the program kicks off on May 9. When students log onto the program and account for their summer minutes read, the top student readers will be awarded with a reading celebration when school starts back. Any minutes logged in starting on May 9 will be counted for the summer reading program.
 
Any books may be read for the summer, but just in case you would like suggestions, we have included a suggested summer reading list. The list is not required, it is just simply to give a good variety of books for students to choose from. We will be sending out more information about the reading program with the students’ award packets in May.

Mrs. Burton has a Twitter account for one of her “critters.”    You may “follow” Rudy Rabbit at @RudyRabbitRead.  

We have a college themed reading incentive program which you may have noticed by the flags, banners, and pennants we have decorated our cafeteria with. Our students can earn Anderson "college degrees" according to the number of AR points they acquire.  Our reading teachers have determined how many AR points are required at each level to receive “degrees.”  These requirements are listed below:
 
 
  Associates Bachelors Masters Doctorate
3rd 25 50 75 100
4th 35 100 150 200
5th 50 125 200 300
Box Tops For Education
This year Coach Goff will be collecting Box Tops For Education.  Box Tops can be found on a variety of items.  Each box top collected is worth 10 cents.  Coach Goff will use the money raised to purchase items for our school. 

Our classes will be competing by grade levels to see which class collects the most Box Top.  The top class per grade level will win a pizza party!  Teachers for the top classes will also earn a little something special! 

So start sending those Box Tops to school with your child!

 
Renaissance Home Connect

Renaissance Home Connect! 

Renaissance Home Connect is a fun way for parents to keep track of their child's progress in Accelerated Reader and Accelerated Math. 

Students will be bringing home a letter that explains how to access Renaissance Home Connect.  The letter will also provide parents with their child's user name and password.  So... hang on to that letter!  Parents will also be able to receive emails when students take AR tests or have Accelerated Math assignments scored.
