    Reading Counts

    Our goal for this school year will be 150,000,000 words.

    This year, the students will be using the Scholastic Reading Counts program.  Reading Counts is a flexible, literature-based motivation and management program that is designed to encourage students to read for pleasure.

    ​Reading Counts Guidelines  

    During the school year, students will have th​e opportunity to participate in the Reading Counts program. Reading Counts is an extracurricular, independent reading incentive program designed to promote student independent reading. Students may use the program to track their progress and they will receive positive recognition for their efforts. Due to increased curriculum demands and loss of instructional time, students may take no more than 2 tests per day.​
