Independent Reading

All students are required to read one independent book a month.  Students must then take an Accelerated Reader (AR) Test upon completion of the book.  
  • Test results are to be printed and submitted to Ms. Asciola for a formative grade.
  • The book chosen and its ATOS level are noted next to each student's grade each month.
