The final nine-week grading period is quickly drawing to an end. A. R. Goals MUST be met on or before May 14. Please remember that only students who achieve A.R. goals for the final two grading periods will be able to shop at our A. R. store at the end of the year. Please continue to encourage your student to read at least thirty minutes each day to achieve this goal.
We will have a reading program for elementary students this summer. The library will be open for a limited time each week. Students may select books to read and take A.R. tests during this time. Points accumulated during the summer will be added to your student’s A.R. goal for the first grading period during the 2021-2022 school year. Details of the Summer Reading Program will be sent home before the end of the school year.
We are continuing to collect Box Tops for Education. Please register at the Box Tops for Education website - www.boxtops4education.com. The money collected from the Box Tops for Education is used for library activities and new books. A drop box has been placed in the Library to collect Box Tops throughout the year.
Summer Reading Program
Edgewood Academy will offer a reading program for students during the summer. The reading program will begin on June 15th and end July 29th. The Library will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. A story and activity will be shared with students on Thursdays at 2:00 P.M. our students will have an opportunity to check out up two books at a time. Children currently participating in our A. R. program may test on books and earn A.R. points. The points earned during the summer will be added to their A.R. goal for the first grading period during the 2021-2022 school year.
