Challenge Complete: Shirley Hills Students Read for Combined 106,800 Minutes
Shirley Hills Primary School students were rewarded Oct. 3 for completing the 2019 Summer Reading Challenge
October 10, 2019 — A total of 89 students were rewarded this fall for completing the Shirley Hills Primary School Summer Reading Challenge. The students read for a combined 106,800 minutes last summer.
Every year, Shirley Hills students entering first through fourth grade are challenged to read 20 times a month for 20 minutes over the summer. The students are each given a chart to track their reading progress, which is turned in the first week of school.
Each student who met the 1,200-minute summer reading goal this year was presented with a personalized award on Oct. 3. First- through third-graders earned medals with their names on them, and fourth-graders received personalized trophies.
During the awards ceremony, Shirley Hills Principal Scott Eidsness praised the students for their achievement. “This extra commitment and hard work will help make you champion readers and give you a great start to the new school year,” Eidsness told the students.
