The 100 Book Challenge program is a systematic independent reading program that allows each student an opportunity to read at his or her independent reading level. Each day a student is encouraged to spend 30 minutes reading at school and 30 minutes at home to increase reading stamina and comprehension. Students track the amount of reading they complete on log sheets that are signed by parents and are reviewed daily by their teacher. Special prizes and school-wide celebrations are given throughout the year to commemorate the students' reading achievements.
Progress Reports are distributed to parents six times each school year. There are also two scheduled parent teacher conferences for the year.
