(Just another awesome project by our IBES PTO!!!!!)
Indian Bayou is now using AR Enterprise. This enables our students to test on any AR quiz (test) that is made by Renaissance Learning. There are over 200,000 of them! The IBES Library is paying an annual fee to have this service.
Of course, our school library can’t possibly furnish books for all of the quizzes available. Therefore, some students may desire to read books from other sources, such as from home, public libraries, purchases, etc. How can you know if such a book is an AR book? Follow these instructions to find out.
1) Using Explorer, go to www.arbookfind.com. Remember that if you find the test on AR Book Find that does not mean the book is in our library. You may want to purchase the book for your child or go to the public library for the book.
Just remember that the book level must be in his/her level which is stated in the AR folder.
Another feature of AR Enterprise is "Home Connect" with this resource parents/guardians can monitor their child's progress online. The steps are as follows:
1) Just click on "Home Connect" Link above.
2) Enter your child's AR username and password. ( letters with your child's login information was sent home)
BOOKMOBILE will be parked at school every other Thursday -next visit will be September 6th. If your child does not have a VP Library card, you can get the application online or ask Mrs. Suzette at school. If your child needs a replacement card, please send $! with your child on the day the bookmobile visits.
AR Book Find
