Summer reading programs improve reading skills and can foster a lifelong love for reading. St. Alphonsus School participates in the Accelerated Reader (AR) program. Students will come to the computer lab to take an AR test(s) on the two summer reading books. These tests will count toward each student's reading grade for the 1st nine weeks of the 2016-2017 school year.
Students cannot chosse a book that they have already read. Once a book is tested on, the Accelerated Reader program does not permit retakes. If a student has tested on a required book for his/her grade, contact Mrs. Bethan Richard or the Reading teacher so an alternate book can be assigned.
As always, it is encouraged that students read more than what is required for summer reading. The East Baton Rouge Parish Library has a wonderful summer reading program with great prizes.
