American Reading Company

We are an American Reading Company School!

With ARC, students keep track of how many "steps" they read. Every 15 minutes of reading counts as one step. The goal is to complete four steps each day. Students read at least 30 minutes each day in school, which counts as two steps. For those students who are learning to read, family reading / being read to counts toward this time. You should find a skill card in your child's take home folder to show which skills are currently his / her focus while reading. Additionally, you will find a log to keep track of reading minutes. If you have questions, do not hesitate to reach out to our reading teachers, Ms. Susan Hutter (shutter@lcsdk12.org) or Mrs. Katie Strusienski (kstrusienski@lcsdk12.org).

We also participate in Book Mark's, a promotion where our readers are eligible to earn free pizza each month, and Darien Lake's Read to Ride program, where readers earn free tickets to the park.
