It is 6 AM on Saturday morning and I just had to get up and tally summer reading logs while enjoying my morning coffee. I have had many anxious readers ask when I would be announcing the results of Summer Reading. Today I will give away some of the suspense!!!!!!!!!!! Students from R.L. Young recorded 335 hours and 28 minutes of reading over summer break. WOW! I am blown away. This added up to 26 students that participated. I can already envision that number will double and even maybe triple next summer. Further break down of the data and I have concluded that 6 first graders, 3 second graders, 9 third graders, 5 fourth graders, 1 fifth grader, and 1 sixth grader accepted the reading challenge. The top three students will be named at the AR Kick Off on September 3rd. I will also give certificates to the 26 students that participated. Our goal was for each student to read 10 hours over the summer, which breaks down to only one hour a week over the break. The top three participants will have McDonald's lunch in the library with Mrs. Taylor and the other 23 participants will be enjoying a popsicle party very soon. I am very proud of the "Leader" Readers at RLY!
