Three Million Books
The challenge: Read three million books in 2012-2013.
· Promote healthy competition, while strengthening students' reading skills and expanding their knowledge in all subjects
· Teach students to set goals and practice important character traits such as perseverance and determination
· Encourage community support through partnerships and volunteerism
Reading is the foundation that leads to academic and personal success for all students. Three Million Books, a district-wide literacy initiative, will improve reading levels of students pre-K through 12 by challenging schools, classrooms and students to read three million books collectively as a district.
Parents and other family members serve as important role models for students. If students see adults reading, children begin to understand the value reading has in our everyday lives. By communicating with your child's teacher, you can learn more about what areas your child is struggling with and how you can help.
