Accelerated Reader Program

Accelerated Reader (AR), provides a balance of independent reading practice with nonfiction reading and close reading skills practice. It is an optional program used to motivate students to become independent readers and includes a year end celebration for those meeting grade level goals/criteria. 

Donelson Elementary uses the Accelerated Reader/Renaissance Place program. Use the website Home Connect to check your child's points, receive alerts, and check goals. You will need your child's username and password to access the account.

Use the AR Book Finder to help identify AR books available to our students. Use it to help identify books you have at home, your local library or school.

You can also check out Donelson Elementary Library's webpage on the Accelerated Reader program for more information!

These websites listed are used for test taking. AR tests may be taken at school between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday during the regular school year.
