Holy Cross School

What is AR?
AR is an abbreviation for Accelerated Reader. This is a program to improve student reading comprehension skills. Students have a choice of books to read, that meet the requirements set by their Language Arts teacher. Upon completion of the book the students take a test and earn pages for successfully completing the test. The students are required to read 2,000 pages each semester, for a total of 4,000 pages by May. Certificates and awards are given to students for every 500 pages earned.

Test Prep Tuesdays & Thursdays
Wednesday, April 23, 2014

The Terra Nova test is a Standardized Norm Reference Achievement test that indicates how a student has achieved in relation to other students in the nation that have taken the test. Student skills are tested in reading, comprehension & vocabulary, language, usage & mechanics, math, reasoning & computation, science and social studies. The scores are important in the planning of curriculum and student placement. On Tuesday and Thursday, the students participate in Homeroom Test Prep competition to prepare for this important test. During Terra Nova Test week the homeroom for each grade level that has won the most test prep competitions will have “Breakfast with the Principal.” 5th grade students with an above average composite score and students in the 6th and 7th grades meeting or exceeding their composite growth target will be invited to “Breakfast with the Headmaster".
