K-4 Winter Reading Challenge!

#freeportreads hosted a winter reading competition among the K-4 elementary schools from December 7th through January 8th. The district has a goal of increasing the amount of time students spend reading because the more a child reads, the more successful they will be!

The building that had the most students participate and read for the highest number of minutes on Raz Kids can be found by clicking below:
