GCS Reads 20 - Make it Count

In October, GCS will announce the first GCS Reads 20 Schools of the Month. To be eligible, your students must read an average of 400 minutes per month (20 minutes a day for 20 days). Winners will receive media coverage and a banner to display at your school. Those 20 minutes count, so make sure to count them!

  • Remember to calculate your schools monthly goal (400 x # of students= Monthly Goal)
  • Please determine how you will kick this off in the fall and collect minutes at your school next year to make it efficient for you.
  • Plan to collect minutes from the summer and submit them when students return in the fall.
  • The GCS Reads 20 Flyer can be found on our Resources Page in both English and Spanish.

Thanks again for all of your hard work and effort to promote reading to your students.
