Thousands and Thousands of Minutes Read - Erickson Read-a-thon Update

This month, Erickson Elementary School enthusiastically participated in the Read-A-Thon that culminated February 29th. Here's an update on the activities:  

Throughout the month, students engaged in a variety of events, including but not limited to Reading in the Dark Day, Bring a Book Day, a school-wide read-along of "The One and Only Ivan," Mystery Reader Day, the Book-to-Film activity, and culminated in a wrap-up assembly celebrating and recognizing the community's dedication to reading. 

With a student body of 184, participants collectively read for 141,605 minutes, averaging approximately 15,000 minutes for primary classes and 20,000 minutes for intermediate classes. The entire community demonstrated a steadfast commitment to fostering a love of reading throughout the month, with our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) generously gathering prizes from local businesses for all our classes.

We love reading at Erickson Elementary. 

Elementary children sit on the floor of a school gymnasium looking at a screen that shows the school's read-a-thon statistics, and the school principal stands in front of that screen with a microphone.
