Dear St. John’s Families,

To refresh enthusiasm for reading as we finish the school year, we are starting a special AR Olympics for 1st-8th grade this coming week.  This aligns with the start of the 2022 Winter Olympics, too!  Goals vary by grade levels and are different from the classroom goals that teachers have established, although you can certainly accomplish both simultaneously.  AR Olympics will run from Feb. 7 to May 13.  Winners will be recognized on the AR Olympic podium in an all-school assembly at the end of the year! Remember that AR is now open all week for test taking. Encourage your students to read, read, read! 

Bronze (prize or medal):

1st grade = 6 points (12 books)

2nd grade = 10 points

3rd-8th grades = 12 points

Silver (ice cream treat):

1st grade = 15 points (30 books)

2nd grade = 20 points

3rd-8th grades = 50 points

Gold (full ice cream sundae bar):

1st grade = 30 points (60 books)

2nd grade = 40 points

3rd-8th grades = 100 points
