Accelerated Reader  (AR):

Library/Media skills is an ELA subskill on the MTC Diocesan Report Card. The grade earned in Library/Media skills is based on the Accelerated Reading (AR) goal percentage achieved. AR Goals are based on the STAR Reading assessment, average percent correct, and selected minutes of daily reading.


Library/Media Skills Grading Scale:

4= Student achieved 90%-100% of their AR Goal

3= Student achieved 80%-89% of their AR Goal

2= Student achieved 70%-79% of their AR Goal

1= Student achieved below 69% of their AR Goal

Students are encouraged to "reach for the stars" by going beyond the Renaissance Learning Accelerated Reading Goal. Students must earn a grade of "3" or "4" in Library/Media skills in order to be eligible for Principals List or Honor Roll.



AR Quizzes:

Students will be able to complete AR tests in the library on designated library days. If a student needs to take an AR quiz before our designated library day, the students can meet with Mrs. Nessler to  find the best time to take an AR during ELA.



Library Schedule:


5A: Wednesdays from 9:30-10:15

5B: Wednesdays from 1:25-2:00
