11 Days to Go!
GCS Reads 20
However, our numbers are declining as the year progresses. So, let's kick it into high gear and encourage all students to record their minutes EVERY SINGLE DAY.
How do students record minutes? Easy! They simply click on the "GCS Reads 20 Minutes Log" app on their tablets, type in the information, and then hit submit!
This quarter we had one winner from each grade (top readers) and one "Viking winner" that was randomly drawn from all of the students who had entered their minutes at least once. Please help me remind students that even if they do not ready 1000 minutes a day, they can still win some cool prizes just by entering in their minutes every day!

TItleWish Promotion - Help us buy books for the library
- Titlewish displays a percentage graph on the campaign page that increases as donations are made. It does not give a dollar amount.
- Donor Lists in the form of an excel spreadsheet will be available once the campaign closes, and is finalized (meaning all of the credit card charges have cleared.) I can email them to the contact at that time. This occurs usually 10 days after the last day.
Keep in mind, this is not a program that allows for company matches as Follett is not a 5013c organization.
