A message from the Layton Elementary PTA:
Hi, Layton Elementary Students! The PTA would like to announce the start of our 2018-2019 Reading Challenge: Read to the Moon! We will be tracking minutes read from now until March to “Read to the Moon.” The moon is approximately 238,900 miles from Earth. Each minute read = 100 miles, so we are hoping each student will read at least 2,389 minutes to make it to the moon. It may sound like a lot, but just 20 minutes a day will get you to the goal! And all reading counts—whether it’s at home or school, and for our newer readers, you can count time being read to as well. We will be tracking minutes using the Road to Success website, so look for papers that explain how to sign in to come home with you.
Here are the rewards: We will have an Earth, moon, and stars up on the wall of the cafeteria. For every 500 minutes you read, your name will be put on a paper spaceship that will go on the wall. If you reach the moon, you’ll have your name added to the moon, you’ll receive a free book, AND you’ll earn the right to throw a water balloon at your teacher in the spring! If you read past the moon, and enter the stars, you can earn extra water balloons to throw at your teacher.
Teachers can also get in on the fun—if they read to the moon, they can earn the right to either have students throw the water balloons meant for them at Mrs. Hammer instead, or they can earn the right to throw their own water balloons at willing students in the spring.
At the end of the challenge, we’ll have a school visit from an author, as well!
So get out there and start tracking up those reading minutes! (https://www.rtsutah.com/)
