THE MILLION MINUTES

Reading Challenge

St. Joseph's School

Growing the Love of Reading

This year, we, the staff of St. Joseph's School, are challenging our students to read for a MILLION minutes. Any reading activity will do: practicing sight words, listening to a story, reading with a friend or reading independently. Our minutes will be tracked and displayed on the school website, and in the main hallway of the school. For every milestone we hit, we will have a celebration of our achievement.

At home, students will be required to keep track of how many minutes they are reading a night. Every few weeks, students can bring in their reading log and the total minutes will be tallied.

Our first milestone will be 100,000 minutes. Once reached, students will get to throw cream pies at the teachers!!

Throughout the coming months, we will begin a reading group in the library at lunch recess, and sending home different reading activities. As always, your continued support at home is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school.
