Media Center
The AR program promotes reading comprehension skills for our children. It is a program that works with the child being read to, read with, and independently reading materials. This encourages children from kindergarten with being read to, the first-grade child with spending time reading with parents, and the second through fifth-grade child to read independently. Reading is the key to their future success in life.  AR Book Finder Montclair Elementary’s Library Catalog – Destiny
