We are TROJAN READERS!!!
CHMS students, grades 7 & 8, are participating in the Accelerated Reader (AR) program.
For those parents not familiar with the program, Accelerated Reader is a computerized reading incentive program. The students read from a series of selected books and take a test. We have a varied selection of books. The computer awards points based on the difficulty of the book and the number of questions that the students answer correctly.
Through the use of this program the staff at CHMS hopes to encourage our students to read more so that they become better readers. Since the amount of time reading is directly associated with academic achievement, we would like to encourage you as parents to promote this program with your children.
