TRACK YOUR CHILD'S READING MINUTES 

Any child who reads 500 minutes will enter a raffle for a basket of books! Every grade that reaches its reading goal will earn a popcorn party. We'll show progress on our virtual banner, posted here when the event begins. Remember reading in any language counts and will pop a jelly colored popcorn kernel!
