#808Reads Reading Challenges
Happy New Year Everyone!
From January 1st to January 31st, Mililani Waena Elementary School will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, “Books Like Us,” sponsored by Simon and Schuster (S&S). We challenge our students to read at least 15-20 minutes everyday during the month of January and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site (Login information below). Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books.
NOTE: This challenge continues all the way through the 3rd quarter for us at Mililani Waena, from January 1st to March 19th. Simon and Schuster will only count the minutes read for the month of January for their challenge. So please continue to log in your minutes until the end of Spring Break for us.
Simon and Schuster prizes will include book collections and virtual author visits. Ten (10) winning schools or libraries will each get a collection of fifty (50) books from the “Books Like Us” collection. Remember, we are TRRFCC together! Happy reading, Mililani Waena!
