ACCELERATED READER

R.O.A.R.

REWARD OF ALL READERS

During the last week of June, the Library opens its doors to the students and rewards each of them with a prize for all their reading efforts during the school year. Our goal is to provide each student with a prize. In order to achieve this goal, we NEED your help. We need prizes, gift cards and money (we can do the shopping for you). If you are able to donate, please consider doing so.

 

Prizes in the past have included:  surfboards, computers, iPads, skateboards, iTunes cards, Amazon gift cards, Yogurtland, and even large boxes of candy. The R.O.A.R. prize giveaway will be held the first week of June. We need to receive these prizes and monetary donations by May 10, 2019. This will give us plenty of time to make sure we have a prize for EVERY student.

 

Each student is provided a wristband based on the number of points they achieved during the school year. Points are earned through our Accelerated Reader (AR) program. The students set a goal at the beginning of each quarter. They then read books and take AR quizzes where they receive points. After receiving their wristbands, they enter the Library at varying times.

 

The top 25 readers enter the Library first to pick their prize and then from there, every 15 minutes a new group comes in until ALL 671 students come through. Our goal is one prize per student with top readers earning the top prizes.

 

Reading has the potential to expand so many horizons, please consider making a contribution to one of our few programs that benefits every student here at Aptos Junior.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

 

OUr Hours 

The Aptos Junior High library is open during the school year from 7:55 AM until 3:30 PM, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  We close at 1:30 on Wednesday and 2:55 on Friday.  Students may come to the library, with a pass, during class time.
