February 10, 2014
of the 245 students at Glen-Worden have been reading a lot since
the Reading Millionaire program began in October.
In fact, they have read at least 250,000
minutes so far - that is 4,166 hours of reading. Their goal is
to read for 1 million minutes.
To celebrate this one-quarter milestone,
the school today got students moving and exercising - whether by
learning Zumba, crawling across the gymnasium floor or balancing
themselves against a wall. They also heard a mystery PTA reader.
Blended in all of the activities was talk
about eating healthy with Food Facts at each station.
