  • Accelerated Reader

    Renaissance Home Connect
    AR Renaissance Home Connect allows you to check student's goals and AR progress.  Enter the username and password your student uses to take AR tests at school.  (Please see the document under “files” for help.)

    Parent Report Portal is an optional, additional reporting system for parents who would like to see their child's AR progress in more detail.  
     
    *This option requires a different username and password from the password you use for Renaissance Home Connect. If you accessed this link in the past and already have a username and password, it should still be valid. If you would like to request a password for this reporting option, please see the "Parent Access for AR Reports" document located under files. Please note: this is not an automatic process and may take up to a week to generate a username and password for you.

    Use this link to find Accelerated Reader titles.  See the AR Book Finder guide under “files” for help. (Remember: the St. Anne Library does not have all AR books; check the library catalog if you want to check it out from school.)

    This optional program helps kids share the love of reading with each other, their teachers, and parents.  Interested kids can sign up by having a parent fill out the permission slip (see document below) and turning it into the library.  Specific instructions will be sent home after your child has been registered.
