Our AR Reading Program begins Monday, October 19th. Teachers will be setting goals and giving out detailed information about their expectations for each of the remaining nine week periods. We will continue to recognize the Top 20 Point earners at the end of the nine week periods. In addition to the Top 20, we have added a few more rewards for those students that work hard to meet their goals each nine weeks. The rewards are as follows:

Eura Brown AR Goals Reward System

2020-2021

*All rewards will be based off the 2nd nine week period being the START date. 1st nine week points earned will not be considered in the determining rewards for the year. 

*Teachers will set student goals and communicate those expectations to students and parents. 

*Students have to meet all 3 nine week period goals in order to participate in the culminating reward activity (t-shirt design contest and tshirt reward).

*Each nine week period, students that meet their goals will have their name displayed on a bulletin board listed by homeroom teacher. This will also be published on the library website. TOP 20 will continue as it has in the past. In addition to Display Recognition the following will also apply:

  • 1st Reward – (Yard Sign) Students will receive a yard sign to display in their yard that displays our EB logo and Eura Brown Reading SuperStar. 
  • 2nd Reward – Reading Charm (seperate from the Reading Certification Charms) will be rewarded to those that have met their goals for both the 1st and 2nd nine week period. This Charm will be able to hang on their chain with their Reading Certification Charms.
  • 3rd Reward – Students will be eligible to participate in the T-shirt design competition entry and will receive a t-shirt with the winning design printed on it. 

*Rewards are earned in progression… you must first earn a yard sign, before you can earn a charm. You must have earned a yard sign and charm in order to participate in the contest and win a t-shirt.
