Media Specialist -Mrs. Haynes
Our goal is to develop a life-long love of literature in our students,as well as to prepare them for the future with the skills necessary to find, select, and utilize information resources.
RCE has various reading incentive programs.
ACCELERATED READER (K-5th)
RCE uses the AR program to increase students' reading levels. Students earn "points" by taking tests on the computers, which allows them to earn various rewards and also increases their reading level and confidence.
Stay connected with your student(s) progress by using AR Home Connect. (User Name = Student ID#, Password = first name)
The link to AR HomeConnect is under Parent Resources.
SSYRA READING CHALLENGE (3rd-5th)
This reading motivation program was designed to entice students to read high interest, contemporary literature for personal enjoyment. The long term goal of the program is to nurture lifelong readers who will continue to read for information needs and personal pleasure.
RCE offers a few incentives to encourage reading of these titles. If a student should read:
3+ SSYR titles - Students will be invited to vote for their favorite SSYRA title on a voting machine supplied by the Osceola Voting Office.
13+ SSYR titles - Students will be invited to a special field trip or sleep-over in the Media Center.
For every SSYR title passed with an AR quiz of 70% and higher will earn a "bag tag" representing each title.
A link to the current SSYRA titles can be found to the left.
SSYRA Jr. (K-2nd)
This new program was just realized in October 2015! The goal is the same as for the 3rd-5th grade SSYRA Reading Challenge. This list consists of 10 picture books and 5 beginning chapter books. Future incentives are currently being considered!

Busy Bee (Kindergarten)
This program is specifically for kindergarten and their families! Parents are asked to read to their child every day. As books are read, parents are to simply fill out a Busy Bee sheet. For every Busy Bee button sheet completed, students will earn a different Busy Bee Button. Students can earn 1 button every week!
