WE DID IT! Newell Elementary School came in #1 in NJ and #11 nationwide in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge! Since our first year competing in 2011, Newell has placed in the Top 20 every year having read 14,304,403 reading minutes total!! Some interesting facts about this year's Reading Challenge: 2,735 schools nationwide competed from all 50 states, Washington DC and two US territories. Newell's total reading minutes of 1,544,624 equals 1,072 days!!
