Accelerated Reader is a reading encouragement and incentive program used by ICES students in the first through fifth grades. Students read books and earn points for successfully completing tests on the books. Accelerated Reader software and tests are designed by Renaissance Learning, and many of the books in our Media Center are AR books (designated by colored dots on the books).
If you have any questions about the AR program, please see the Media Specialist or check with your child's teacher.
