Speeding to Read Update:

Our campus Wildly Important Goal is that all students will meet or exceed end of year expectations in reading. In order to reach this goal, Seven Hills Leaders need to be reading every day! Speeding to Read is a fun way to help students get excited about reading and help students reach their goals. We are in turn 2. Please make sure your child is reading at home and logging their books. Reading logs should be in STAR folders. If you need a new log, please contact your child's teacher.


  • For Turns 2, 3 and 4, the minimum goal is 25 books per turn for Kindergarten–2nd-grade students and six (6) chapter books for 3rd–5th-grade students.


We encourage students to set high goals and read over the minimum number of books each turn. We had many students read over the minimum and we’d like even more this time! We are in turn 3. Turn 2 standings will be announced after the winter break. Make sure you are reading over the break. Turn 3 ends on March 2.


Note: Each turn starts over with the count of books. The books read in turn 1 do not count in turn 2.
