LMC Updates

Reading Olympics


Students at Young are getting ready to participate in a schoolwide Reading Olympics over the next three weeks. They will be aiming to hit assorted reading goals throughout the program. Each class is its own team (ex. Team Hood) and will have a chance to unlock fun activities and challenges brought by the LMC. The Reading Olympics will be taking place exclusively during the school day (no outside tasks or papers needed). We hope you can join us in promoting reading broadly during this time.
