#APSRace2Read Update: 15 Schools Have Crossed the New Finish Line!

by talkupaps

With 7,027,146-plus minutes read and logged, we are currently at 54 percent of our new #APSRace2Read goal of 13.1 million minutes. Fifteen of our schools have crossed the finished line, our readers have collectively earned 39,574 badges, and we have logged more than 262,626 minutes in the past two weeks!

#APSRace2Read will continue through the summer, but not before we acknowledge those who have made this districtwide reading challenge a success this school year.

On May 17, the #APSRace2Read Prize Patrol squad will deliver bikes, Chipotle coupons, Chick-fil-A gift cards, toys, and swag bags to our top student readers and top schools! (We’re also tweeting pictures and tagging schools!)

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to award your students for their participation in this districtwide reading challenge. Please continue to read and log your minutes.
