Reading Challenges

The media center will host a reading challenge each quarter. Each challenge will require students to read a certain number of books/genres/etc. After reading, students will share what they read by completing a book review, creating a book trailer, or completing another project. Students who complete the challenge will be invited to a celebration, and they will be recognized at the quarterly awards ceremonies.

Reading Promotions

Monthly reading promotions will be sponsored by the media center, and they will correlate with special reading events and/or holidays. Reading promotions will be announced on the daily news show. Promotions may include special events, drawings, special recognition, etc.
