All students will participate in an Enrichment period each day.  The school wide expectation is that students who are not working on enrichment or extension projects/activities will be working toward their individual Accelerated Reader (AR) goal.

AR Goals

  • Goals are set to help students improve their reading skills (fluency, comprehension, vocabulary development, and word analysis).
  • Goals are set based on students’ current levels, and the amount of time they will be participating in AR.
  • Students may also spend enrichment time in tutorial groups related to their core subjects.

Materials Needed Daily

  • A reading book at student’s reading level. 
    • In order to earn points, students must choose books at their level that have AR quizzes available.Levels of books can be found at:
    • It is each student’s responsibility to have his/her next novel selected and ready to read if he/she anticipates finishing his/her current book.
  • Binder paper
  • Writing utensil


  • Grading for Enrichment period is based on the following:
    • AR Goals
    • Participation and Behavior
  • Enrichment grades will be Pass (P) or No Pass (NP).70% and above will earn a Pass.
  • It is expected that students will participate in their AR independent work or enrichment activities without teacher prompting.Off task behaviors will result in the loss of daily points and a lowered grade.

SVMS 6th Grade Homework Tips for Students and Parents

  • In 6th grade we expect approximately one “working” hour on school work.

  • For Math, have your student stick to a time limit, and then have him/her come to class with questions about homework he/she didn’t understand.

  • If your student needs to take a break every 15 minutes, set a timer, take a break, then set the timer again for another 15 minutes.

  • Plan your week using the SchoolLoop, which is updated at the beginning of each week.

  • Set aside space to work, with all supplies necessary

  • Have student do homework where you can easily supervise.

  • Enrichment is not a time for homework, but it is a time to get extra help on homework or catch up on absent work.

  • Put distractions away during homework time!! Examples can include social media devices, video games, and TV.

  • Don’t forget that 6th graders require good nutrition and rest to function well at school.
