Race 2 Read October Challenge
We are now gearing up for our October Race 2 Read Challenge! Since October is National Pizza Month the top class will win a pizza party for the month of October!
*Mrs. Miller and the district monitor minutes logged and will make adjustments accordingly. If a student logs over 300 minutes on a school day that is cause for concern and the reading log is flagged.
We already have logged over 60,000 minutes which is 9% of our 667,000-minute goal. I can't express my excitement at how far we have come! This time last year we only had 4,000 minutes logged. We are building a culture of reading one student and one book at a time!
Reminder: Teachers you can log minutes for your whole class! I will link a how-to video below! Top readers and teachers will be rewarded at the end of the month!
Most students should have 30 minutes for breakfast and books daily! Teachers/Staff, you can log minutes too! If you are a reader I encourage you to log your time as well!
Teachers and Students can access the website via My BackPack.
Congratulations to these teachers and students for winning the September Challenge for Race2Read!

Iuyana Miller, Ed.S
Hi, My name is Iuyana Miller! I am honored to be your school library media specialist. I have been a media specialist for 10 years and taught both Pre-K and 1st grade for 11 years prior to becoming a media specialist. Although my official title is a media specialist I wear many hats throughout the school building. I am married to Timothy and have 2 children. We love to travel and attend Sunday Braves games(the 7th inning stretch is my favorite part)!
