Accelerated Reader

We have enabled Accelerated Reader (AR) testing to continue at home through this period of the Step Start and Bear Creek Choice plan. Please read through the following rules with your children before you begin AR at home testing.

The following rules apply to AR at home testing:

  1. Students may not refer to the book in question when taking an AR test. The book must remain closed for the entirety of the test.
  2. Students may not ask for help on any questions of an AR test.
  3. If a student is a beginning reader, an adult may read the test questions and answer choices aloud. No other assistance may be given.
  4. AR tests taken from home will not be deleted due to a low score. 
  5. Non-compliance with any of the rules of AR testing may result in the following actions: blockage of remote AR testing, removal of points from a student’s account, and/or disqualification from higher AR point clubs.
Lower School Curriculum Night on October 1

Lower School teachers will present an overview of our curriculum for the 2020 – 2021 school year on Thursday, October 1. Most parents say that Curriculum Night is one of the most valuable events of the school year. Teachers will share information about the curriculum, schedules, activities, and expectations to assist you in supporting your child this year. 

Join grade-level curriculum presentation, then break out into a class meeting with your child's teacher. Break-out meeting links will be provided during the grade-level sessions.

How to Join a Teams Meeting

All you need to join a Teams meeting is a link. Clicking the link takes you to a page where you can choose to either join in your browser or download the desktop app (or mobile app). If you already have the Teams app, the meeting will open in the app automatically. Please do not join the meeting using your child’s Office 365 account. To ensure this, you may have to log out of your child’s account before clicking the link(s) to join the Curriculum Night session(s).

If you don’t have a Teams account, you may have the option to enter your name to join the meeting as a guest. If you do have a Teams account, select “Sign in” to join with access to the meeting chat and more. Then, depending on the organizer’s settings, you may join the meeting right away or go to the lobby where the organizer can admit you.
