Readvolution is over! Success!

It’s OFFICIAL! Cary Elementary has qualified for the raffle for the Day Field Trip with the Hurricanes by exceeding the goal of 2020 books read!  A far cry from last year, we read 2369 books this year as a school!

Forty-seven of the over 130 elementary schools participating qualified–and we were one!  The raffle was conducted Friday afternoon.  Nine schools were drawn to win the day with the Hurricanes field trip.  Unfortunately, we were not one of them.   But we already know that we are winners, win or lose the prize!  Cary Elementary and its fabulous readers, and all of our supporters and encouragers, are part of what makes this school amazing!  Our efforts more than DOUBLED last year’s.  And we were part of an effort in Wake County where over 250,000 books were read since September 24th!  Astounding!

In regards to the individual portion of the contest, reading submissions were due Friday.  To win 2 free tickets to a designated Hurricanes game, our readers needed to have logged 800 reading minutes.  Your child will receive information about this recognition in the future.  Stay tuned.

Congratulations for such amazing dedication and hard work!  We knew your COUGAR PRIDE would shine through!

READVOLUTION ends THIS FRIDAY (November 16th)

WE DID IT!

September 24th we set off to improve from last year’s Readvolution efforts, and we crushed it!

Last year we read just over 1100 books.  We have ONE WEEK LEFT and we have already SURPASSED the minimum goal of 2020 to meet the school-wide raffle qualifications.  That’s almost double what we accomplished in year one.  And we still have time for more books to be read (and logged)!

The school wide goal was to read 2020 books. Now that’s accomplished, our school qualifies to be placed into the raffle to win the Cool School Day Field Trip at PNC Center with the Hurricanes!

Individually, each student still needs to have logged at least 800 minutes by Friday, November 16th to qualify for his/her prize.  Students who accomplish this challenge will earn 2 Hurricanes tickets!

Tip: If you still need log-in information or other Readvolution details, please see here: https://caryelementary.wordpress.com/2018/09/22/2nd-annual-readvolution-begins/

Please keep logging your efforts!  We’ve met the school-wide minimum for books read.  Individual goals might still need to be met (or surpassed!). Let’s show Stormy what the Cary Cougars are made of and see what we can accomplish in our last week!

 

Keep up the GREAT work Reading Superstars!
