St Rita Wins American Heart Association Challenge

In order to keep children healthy and active, the American Heart Association developed a new initiative, the Heart Walk & Run Child Health Challenge.

The American Heart Association selected 25 local schools, including St. Rita School, to participate and asked them to make a video showing why they could use new PE equipment. Mr. Mutrie created a video with help from the entire school. Four winners were chosen out of the 25 video submissions and WE WERE ONE OF THEM!

Accelerated Reader

How does it work?

Determine reading level. First, a student’s optimal reading level is determined through the STAR Reading Enterprise assessment. This assessment provides information on a student’s overall reading ability and suggests a range of book levels for each student called the “zone of proximal development”, or ZPD. An entire class can be screened in approximately 15 minutes.

Personalize practice. Personalized reading practice means students read books of interest at their own level that they can comprehend. AR BookFinder helps teachers, librarians, and students find just the right book appropriate to their individual reading level and interest level.

Students take an AR Quiz. AR offers over 145,000 quizzes of five types. AR Quizzes are constantly being written for both fiction and nonfiction titles. Students have many different options when it comes to taking AR Quizzes, including handheld Apple® devices.

Receive instant feedback. AR provides teachers with immediate information, helping them monitor the reading level and comprehension skills of each student and inform further instruction or intervention. Parents can get instant feedback to help motivate success at  Renaissance Home Connect.

 

Now that the school year has started we can count how many books and words we've read!



Let's get reading!



Welcome to Accelerated Reader: Enterprise!

 

Students now have access to the entire database of AR quizzes - over 145,000. We are so busy learning during school that we do not always have time to take quizzes at school. Since reading occurs at home, we've decided to allow quiz taking at home.  Remember, the purpose of taking quizzes is to help your teachers know if you are able to read and comprehend the books you are choosing, so it does no good to have someone else help you with or take a quiz for you.
