Sheckler News: Start logging hours for readathon event

Wednesday, January 30, 2019 by The Press in School

In honor of Read Across America, Sheckler Elementary School will be participating in a readathon for the month of February. Students are encouraged to read or be read to for at least 15 minutes each day — but you can always read more if you would like to. All types of reading count: books, magazines, comics and e-books are some examples.

Calendars were sent home with students to record the number of minutes read per day for the entire month. At the end of the month, parents are asked to add up the minutes their child read and return the signed calendar to school by March 1.
