About our Media Center

Palmetto Elementary is an AR (Accelerated Reader) School. AR is a wonderful incentive program that entices students to READ! The program works in conjunction with STAR Reading to help students read on a level that is comfortable for them. It allows them to be successful in therefore helping them to achieve personal success, and earn points while reading. We have divided the points into nine levels. At the end of each month, we examine each students reading progress and the points are awarded. The students (in keeping with our Knight Theme) move up the incentive ladder as follows:About our Media Center
