AR Top Ten List-

The top ten students in each grade who earn the most points every month while maintaining an 85 average will make the top ten list. The list will be posted in the media center. Students will receive a certificate at Honor's Night.

Point Clubs-

As students read and earn points, they will become members of point clubs. Clubs will be established for students earning 25 points, 50 points, 100 points, 250 points, and 500 points. A point club wall listing student members will be displayed in the media center.

Honor’s Night-

Students earning 100 points by the end of the year while maintaining an 85 average will receive a certificate on Honor’s Night.

In each grade, the student who earns the most points during the year while maintaining an 85 average will win an award on Honor’s Night.

The entire school is challenged to a point competition. If the total points earned for the school is at least 35,000 points, volunteer faculty will participate in a Color Run.
