The AR Home Connect information will be sent home so you can track your child’s success and points in the AR program. To find out if a book has an AR test, please visit http://arbookfind.com. Individual classroom teachers have various rules and procedures for implementing AR, so it is used differently throughout the school.

If you would like to access your child's AR scores, please contact Mrs. May (Leigh-Ann.May@lcschools.org) to request a Home Connect letter.
