Sandy Grade exceeds reading goal

Sandy Grade has surpassed its goal of getting the whole school to read for 210,000 minutes.

At last count, the total was 228,279 minutes for the entire building.

Students, who have been working toward their reading goal since Oct. 20, will receive an extra recess and a popcorn party as a reward for turning in their reading logs and reading like champs.

“As a building we wanted to help promote the love of reading and to put reading at the forefront of our students’ thinking,” said Principal Rachael George. “It was our hope that by working together as a school in a cross grade level fashion that students would come together to make it a priority in their daily routine.”
