Quizzes

AR Book Finder is a reading program to encourage students to read for pleasure. They earn points by taking a test on the book they have read. The tests are located on the computer. At the end of each nine weeks, we have an AR shopping day. The students can trade their points for merchandise. If you wish to see if some of the books you have at home are AR please log on to the Renaissance Learning website.
