During the next few days, you may notice your child has an added interest in reading books. Why?
As the kick-off event for our Read Across America Celebration of reading, your child is preparing to take part in a nationwide challenge called Read The Most From Coast To Coast set for Friday, March 1, 2013.
This national celebration of reading challenges students at all grade levels to join together and break the record for the number of Accelerated Reader™ Quizzes taken in one day. The record to top this school year is an amazing 3,581,992 quizzes. Our school is among thousands of U.S. schools that will help top this national record.
You can join in the excitement by encouraging your child to read even more on the days leading up to the big event. You can further your involvement by reading with them, discussing books and authors, and asking what quizzes they plan to take on “Read The Most From Coast to Coast” Day.
All students who take an Accelerated Reader Quiz on March 1, 2013, will be eligible to receive a “Certificate of National Participation.”
Thank you in advance for helping your child prepare to take part in this fun event and shared challenge designed to accelerate learning on a national level. If you like, you may track national progress on the big day at www.renlearn.com/readthemost and on your website at www.collegeschool.udel.edu.
