Summer Reading

We will have our summer reading program where students can check out books and take AR tests again this year from June 9-July 23.   The days are Tuesday from 7:00a.m.-1:00p.m.  and Thursday from 2:00p.m. to 7:00p.m..   Incoming kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students will check out books from the Primary Center, while incoming third grade, fourth grade and fifth grade students will check out from the 4th & 5th Grade Center. 

Students will have a summer reading goal for AR points.   The goals for each grade level (incoming) are as follows:

Kindergarten-3

First Grade-5

Second Grade-5

Third Grade-6

Fourth Grade-8

Fifth Grade-10

To achieve this goal, students must also have a comprehension percent of 80% or higher.  Students who earn the appropriate number of points with the 80% comprehension will be recognized at the beginning of the school year.

Please note:  The summer reading program for the Elementary level is optional.

The link to this site is: http://www.tvcs-ar.org/RenaissanceServer/HomeConnect/Login.aspx

You will use your child's log-in information for this site. 

Parent PI Books

  The Elementary Media Centers offer the following books that you may read and take AR tests on for Informational hours.  I recommend  you read them earlier in the year as they can be hard to find the closer we get to May! Please note:  you must have a student enrolled in the Elementary School to read and test on these books for PI time.   The media centers at the Middle and High Schools have books for parents of their students.
