NORTH PARK TIGERS were challenged to read over One Million Minutes. THEY MADE IT HAPPEN!
Each student needed to read for at least 20 minutes or more per night. At the conclusion of each week, the students turned in the total number of reading minutes to see if they could beat the other classes within their grade level. This was a lot of fun because the class with the most minutes would receive a trophy and a treat. This friendly competition encouraged the students to keep going to achieve their collective goal of a million minutes. This certainly was a team effort that required not only students, but the teachers, the reading specialist, the librarian, and principal Jared Abney. Parents who encouraged the importance of reading are also to be commended.
LASTLY, A BIG SHOUT OUT IS OWED TO TYLER GRANT, THE OWNER AND PILOT OF BLADE HELICOPTERS WHO HELPED SPONSOR THIS AWESOME EVENT!
Way to go, North Park Tigers! Keep Reading!
