Only Five Days Left of the Reading Games!

The Reading Games end Sunday at midnight.  So since it is going to be a rainy Thanksgiving, why not eat another piece of pie and curl up inside with a good book?  Remember to log your minutes by midnight Sunday night though!  Anything timestamped after that won't be counted!  You can log your minutes here.
 And here are the results after the end of week three.  All these results are current as of 3pm Friday the 20th.   This  year we have already read more minutes than we did in total last year.  Why is that?  Because we have higher participation!  Three teams have nearly 100% participation, and the school stands at 48% participation overall!  And because of that participation, we are now leading the district competition too!  If  you add up all the minutes we have read together in three weeks, it would take one person three months to read non-stop 24/7!
Congratulations to the six students who have already read in all seven genres.  It looks like there are another eight who will easily finish the race.  Great job Goldenview!

Week Two: a Dead Heat!

This has been an exciting week.  Vega has spent some serious time logging minutes and has caught up with Super Nova.  The two are in a virtual tie!

Congratulations to Super Nova which is the first team ever to have 100% participation in three years!

Also, for the first time ever, the teachers are leading the students in minutes read per person.  Great job staff!

Below are the stats for the week.  The top readers are listed.  Three people have already finished the race by reading all seven genres.  And thirty people have read two or more genres.  Congratulations everyone!  Keep logging your minutes here!

Week One of the Reading Games

Week one is finished, and although it is always a slow start, we are reading a lot more than last year (well, except for the teachers).  Vega was ahead until 89% of Super Nova sat down and recorded their times on Friday afternoon.  Way to go Super Nova!  If everyone on a team records even a few minutes a week, YOUR team could be way ahead too!  See the results below.

And here are the statistics for the whole school, as well as the current early leaders among the students.  So far 27 students have earned at least one genre bookmark!  Congratulations to the four students listed below who have at least two!
