Accelerated Reader -
The Accelerated Reader program is a computer based reading assessment program used here at Madison Street Academy. We hope to motivate students to become independent and self-motivated readers. The Accelerated Reading program assessments guide children to books on their personal reading level. Also, kids are rewarded regularly for successful reading. The goal for this program is to help students acquire a lifelong love of reading.
Sunshine State Young Readers' Award - Each year Florida chooses 15 books to be on the Sunshine State list. This program is open to all third through fifth grade students. Students must read the books from the list to be qualified to vote for the book they like best.
