- Accelerated Reading Quiz Program - 

 

 
Most students from Grades 3 - 6 participate in some way in the Accelerated Reader Program (A.R.) at Promontory Elementary.  Many books in our library have bright pink stickers on the spines with the reading levels printed on them.  The reading levels help a student find a 'just right book' within a reading zone in which he/she can be successful at reading and comprehending.  Each student in grades 3 - 6 should have one 'just right' or an A.R. book he/she is reading, along with other choice books.  After reading, the student logs into his /her A.R. account, selects the book he/she has read and takes a reading comprehension test. These are tracked by the A.R. program and the results are given to the teachers each month.
 
* A.R. brochure is included at the bottom of this page

 

 

- Library Parent Volunteers - 

We are fortunate to have the assistance of a core team of parents who provide a great service to our school, by helping in the library.   We couldn't have such a successful and busy library without your help!       

 If you would like to help out in the library,   please come and see Mrs. Davies.
