Accelerated Reader Home Connect

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Your student uses a software program called Renaissance Place at school. This program has a special feature called Renaissance Home Connect, which your student and you can access outside of school from any computer with an Internet connection. Renaissance Home Connect is fun and easy to use. It allows the teacher, you and your student to share information about your student's progress in Accelerated Reader.


You can log in to Renaissance Home Connect from any computer with an Internet connection.

A Parent's Guide To Accelerated Reader

Looking for new books for your student or a Birthday Book?

Below are some great sites:




The Birthday Book Program is designed to involve students and their families in the school library while expanding the library’s collection of books. Your child’s name, picture, and birthday will appear on a dedication plate placed in the book. Their Birthday Book will be presented to them at the monthly assembly. If your child has a summer birthday, their book will be presented either at the first assembly of the year or the last assembly. You are welcome to attend and watch your child receive their birthday book. Your child will have two weeks to enjoy reading the book and after it is returned, the book will be added to our collection for other students to enjoy.

You can purchase a new book at the Colony Oak Library priced $12.00 - $15.00. There are a variety of titles and subjects at various reading levels to choose from. The Library will be open before and after school if you wish to purchase a book.

To participate in this worthwhile program, please complete the form (click FORMS above) and return to school.  You must purchase a book, or donate a purchased book for your child in order to participate.
