MUNFORD MIDDLE SCHOOL

LIBRARY BOOK CONSENT FORM


Dear  Parents/Guardians:

As you know, Munford Middle/High School share a Media Center. I am writing to you to inform you that there are various young adult titles in our library that may contain profanity and/or other more mature content such as drugs, sexuality, suicide, violence, etc., that may not be appropriate for middle school age students. These  books are marked with a sticker on the back of the book that states what grades the books are most appropriate for. I realize that many middle school age students read on a high school level and are mature enough to handle the young adult content. You know your child best and I respect your decision regarding what he/she reads from our school library. If your child wishes to read books that are labeled for higher grades due to mature content, please sign this form and email it to me at mthornton@tcboe.org giving your child permission to do so.  If you have any further questions, please contact me at school at 256-315-5246. I thank you for your time and willingness to better your child’s education.

Sincerely,

Mandy Thornton

Munford Middle School

Library Media Specialist

Accelerated Reader Parent Information

What is Accelerated Reader? Accelerated Reader (AR) is a computer program that helps teachers and librarians manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his own level and reads it at his own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. (Passing the quiz is an indication that your child understood what was read.) AR gives children, teachers, and librarians feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help your child set goals and direct ongoing reading practice. Children using AR choose their own books to read, rather than having one assigned to them. This makes reading a much more enjoyable experience as they can choose books that are interesting to them. Teachers and librarians help your child choose books at an appropriate readability level that are challenging without being frustrating, ensuring that your child can pass the quiz and experience success. If your child does not do well on the quiz, the teacher or librarian may help your child:

• Choose another book that is more appropriate.

• Ask more probing questions as your child reads and before your child takes a quiz.

• Pair your child with another student, or even have the book read to your child.

 Students are assigned a point range and goal after the Renaissance STAR Reading assessment is administered during the first weeks of school.  At MMS, we recommend that students read at home, in Reading/Literature class, and in other classes as time allows.  

The achievement of the AR goal is vital to the success of each student; this grade will be averaged as one standardized test grade in reading/literature class each nine weeks. Students must also attain an average comprehension score of at least 85% on AR tests taken to receive full points (85 points) for comprehension.

We ask that you be an active partner in this program with your child and us.  Your child needs your help.  Please encourage him/her to read every day.  Please be aware of your child’s instructional level and his/her book choices.  Check to see if you think the book he/she is reading is a good choice.   

Parents are able to check for AR quizzes available to the students at www.arbookfind.com.  You may also check your student’s reading record from home by signing up with AR Home Connect through our school website.  Log on using your student’s username and password.  Tests may not be taken from home, but reading records (point totals, comprehension percentage, etc) may be checked.

 Reading helps to increase your child’s vocabulary, comprehension, and communication skills. Reading helps him/her become a better overall student.  In class, we are working on strategies to improve reading/thinking skills.  A great way for students to improve these vital learning areas is to PRACTICE!  

 Thank you for your assistance in this very important area of your child’s academic growth.
