PHPS Parent Accelerated Reader
Parents, you can view your child’s daily and cumulative performance and set up an email notification whenever your child takes a test through AR HomeConnect. You may have received an informational letter at the August Parent Meeting which contained the student username and password needed to enter HomeConnect. Please contact your child’s teacher if you need the Home Connect information.
We are very fortunate at PHPS to have access to all the many thousands of AR tests that Renaissance Learning offers. This means that we have a test for almost any book your child would want to read. By going to the AR Bookfinder website you may look up books by title and author to find out their grade level and point value and whether they have a test or not. You can also click on “Advanced Search” and find books in a particular grade level range using various criteria. This should come in handy if you and your child are choosing books from the bookstore or public library as opposed to the school library.
The Accelerated Reader Program is a valuable adjunct to our core reading program at PHPS. It aids us in realizing our goal for our students of continuous growth of their reading skills and ultimately, their development of a lifelong love of reading. Please encourage your child to enthusiastically participate in this program.
