Students are required to read one book that is designated a Texas book during each six weeks. These books are marked in the HJH library. Once students have taken the test on the Texas AR book, they must show the results in their folders to Mrs. Vanek. (There must be teacher initials next to these results in order to get credit.) This is a TEST grade.

Students are allowed to read any Texas book, regardless of its level, for this grade. However, if the first test for a six weeks is failed and the student wants to read a second book to better the grade, it must be on level.
