ACCELERATED READER PROGRAM
The Accelerated Reader Program is used throughout our Elementary School as an extension to our reading programs. AR allows students to take tests on books that they have read in school or at home. Then the students, teachers, and parents can see how well the child is comprehending the material that they are reading. Students are very motivated in this program, internally and externally. Check in with your child on how well they are doing in AR. Click on the button below and have your child login and show you how well they have been doing.
Common Core State Standards
What exactly is the Common Core and how will it impact the education of my child?
The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. Teachers at Three Forks Elementary will continue to deliver great instruction and content material to their students. We will be using the Common Core as our guide.
