What are you doing to promote Roadmap2Reading?

WFMY wants to know what you are doing to promote the Roadmap2Reading program in your school. I have heard from 50 schools. Our district total is 990 minutes/miles. That means, as a district, we are in Champaign, Illinois. We have a long way to go.
Remember you must take your school total and divide it by the number of students in your school to get the average mileage per student for your school. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
Please click HERE to share what you are doing.
(if you have pictures, please email them to me separately, but enter your information in the link above)
These were DUE last Friday.
