Take the Reading Heroes Challenge

Starting Monday September 20th, a new reading challenge begins in the Barrow Media Center.  In honor of our upcoming book fair, “Here’s to Our Heroes: Reading Saves the Day”, we’re challenging all Barrow students, teachers, and parents to participate in a month long reading promotion called the Reading Heroes Challenge.  Each participant will set 3 important reading goals for the next 4 weeks.

Goal 1:  Heroes need to read a lot in order to become experts at what they do.  How many pages or books can you read before October 8th?

Goal 2:  Heroes need to spend a lot of time training to be good at what they do.  How many minutes can you read before October 8th?

Goal 3:  Heroes never know what kind of challenge they may face.  What book can you read that is outside your comfort zone?

Entry forms are coming in Monday’s purple folder or can be downloaded at Slideshare.  Set your goals.  Visit the Media Center for great books.  Keep track of your goals.  Turn in your completed sheets to the Media Center by October 8th.  Each completed entry will enter you into a drawing for a book fair gift certificate and your name will be displayed in our book fair decorations.

Are you up for a challenge?
