AR Guidelines

We encourage all students at Harry Shimotsu Elementary to participate in the Accelerated Reader (AR) program.  Students who read books independently or who have books read to them can earn points by taking AR quizzes.  Many books have AR quizzes that have been created to test comprehension through questions with multiple choice answers.
The following are some AR guidelines to keep in mind:
1.  Students may take an AR quiz at school, in the classroom or library.
2.  Parents are not permitted to help children while they are taking quizzes.
3.  Students may take a quiz on a book only one time.
4.  Students should not use the book during a quiz to help answer questions.
In an effort to promote AR success, we have put in place some incentives and rewards for students.
Please click on the file(s) below for an explanation of those rewards.
