Reading Counts Program Information
This program is offered for all Deer Meadow students. Reading Counts is an automated software program that monitors student reading progress through multiple-choice questions on student selected books from the Deer Meadow Library. After a student has read the library book, he/she will be able to take a short quiz on a computer in their classroom, computer lab, or our library. As they pass quizzes and earn points, students will receive fun rewards.
