K-5th grade students at Moncure School participated in ReadQuest, a nationwide reading event on Friday, February 26, 2016. They joined more than 12,000 educators and tens of thousands of students in Renaissance Learning’s annual one-day reading celebration that encouraged K–12 students to read and share their discoveries.
Students read books and took Accelerated Reader comprehension quizzes on what they had read to contribute to the national reading effort. On the ReadQuest website, students were able to see their quizzes count toward the national books-read ticker, the top books and articles read in each state, prize winners, and user-submitted posts, tweets, and photos.
Approximately 125 students from our school took part in the shared effort. We successfully read and passed quizzes on 276 books. Nationally, all participants read 3,763,408 books. All students who read books and passed quizzes received a Certificate of National Participation.
“ReadQuest was a great event for our students,” said MJ Gregory. “They loved seeing their Accelerated Reader quizzes count toward the national books-read ticker. ReadQuest supported our mission of promoting reading growth and our students gained valuable reading practice. We’re so proud of all our students.”
Renaissance Learning’s Accelerated Reader 360 is a K–12 program that engages students in personalized independent reading practice and close reading of nonfiction articles. The web-based program provides over 175,000 independent reading quizzes and 1,200 high-interest nonfiction articles.

Greetings from Moncure School,
I wish to personally welcome you to our school and to our website. The 2015-2016 school year will be an exciting opportunity for our students and staff to demonstrate growth and achieve success.
Moncure School has an outstanding heritage and reputation for dedicated teachers and effective instruction. The community is extremely supportive of the school culture and is keenly interested in school events and activities. Our proximity to the Raleigh metro area ensures that our families have access to numerous cultural, educational, and historic sites. Nearby Jordan Lake State Recreational Park offers a multitude of outdoor activities.
We believe that every student can and should be prepared for college and career readiness and are committed to helping our students meet this goal. We believe we must:
• Be excellent in all ways.
• Make failure unacceptable.
• Celebrate victories large and small.
• Raise the bar now.
Thank you for your interest in Moncure School. If I can be of assistance to you, please contact me. I encourage you to be a part of our community.
