Accelerated Reader is a tool that allows our students to read and then test on Accelerated Reader books. This program helps the teacher, student and parent steer the children to books that they can comfortable read and comprehend. It is most important that the student comprehends what they read. Students are to be at 85% accuracy or better.

Thanks go to the generous donation from the St. Bede Parent Teacher Council which helped to provide funds for the limousine and prizes throughout the school year. Not only were the students driven around in style in a Hummer Limousine from Touch of Class, but they also were treated to a delicious lunch. All the students had a blast! Many students upon exiting the limo, commented, “That was so cool!”
