Summer Reading Challenge A Major Success
A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF OUR VCS READERS!!
We are so proud of each and every one of our readers for this Summer Reading Challenge!
Our Summer Reading Challenge went above and beyond what we expected. Our original goal of 1,500 pages was surpassed within one week and our subsequent goal of 10,000 pages was reached after just 4 weeks! Since our students kept surprising us, we decided to let them set their own personal reading goals to finish the challenge. This left us with a new combined goal of 25,000 pages to read by Friday, July 29th.
Our grand total pages read: 27,476 pages!! That's over 18 times our original goal!
Here are our Summer Reading Challenge Winners:
KG: Isabella Smith-3672 pages (Get Caught Reading Contest Winner)
1st: Sam Howells-1130 pages
2nd: Hallie Witte-1532 pages (1st place winner from the drawing. Also Coloring/Drawing Contest Winner.)
3rd: Bradley Hamm-3813 pages
4th: Oways Abdur-Rahman-5368 pages (2nd place winner of the drawing.)
5th: Rodney Benson III-462 pages
6th: Josh Howells-3412 pages
7th: Anthony Stone-896 pages
Along with the page total goals, we also had mini-challenges!
Students were encouraged to send in pictures for Get Caught Reading. Pictures were judged based on quality and creativity. Isabella Smith and her little brother Lucas were our winners for this contest! They were caught reading while having a unicorns and royalty story time. These pictures show just how much fun reading can be.
Our coloring mini-challenge encouraged students to color a pre-selected picture or pick their own picture to color or draw free-hand that relates to one of the books they read this summer.
Our winner for this challenge was Hallie Witte - an upcoming 3rd grader at VCS. Congratulations, Hallie!
AGAIN,WAY TO GO EVERYONE!
