Accelerated Reader

We are pleased to utilize the Accelerated Reader program (AR) with our children in grades 1 through 5.AR Logo

AR is an online testing and record keeping resource allowing students to read and test over library books in their individually assigned reading zone.

Blackhawk believes AR is a positive motivational tool rewarding the practice of pleasure reading.

AR is not our reading curriculum, but enhances students’ love of reading bringing the added benefit of students becoming more proficient readers with exposure.

  • Parents can access the records for their students through Home Connect.
  • This allows parents to see books students have read and scores for tests taken.
  • Parents can request email be sent every time a student completes a quiz.

Students and Parents can access the AR Bookfinder from any location with Internet access to search for participating books using grade level, author or title.
