The March Reading Madness has come to an end. In honor of I Love to Read Month, students in the Middle School participated in a March Madness reading competition. Each homeroom had two teams competing for the most points (pages read). While the competition did not end with a three point shot in the last second of the game, it did end with a big win: Mrs. Applegate’s Home team with a total of 21,500 pages read. Congratulations Mrs. Applegate’s Home team! The entire middle school should be congratulated for their participation. The collective pages of free-reading for the middle school was over 244,000 pages. Wow! What an impressive accomplishment for our students.
Throughout the tournament, prizes were awarded to weekly winners. The weekly winners were:
Week One – Most pages read: Mr. Mulvena’s Home team
Week Two – Greatest percent increase over week one: Mrs. Anderson’s Home team
Week Three – Increase in pages read three weeks in a row: Mrs. Zehner’s Home team
