Welcome Back to School

Read the Most Coast to Coast

Students at California Elementary are preparing for a nationwide effort to "Read the Most Coast to Coast" on Friday, February 28th.  They are among hundreds of thousands of students who will join in this 3rd annual reading challenge.

Read the Most Coast to Coast encourages students to read more and take part in a one-day effort to beat the record for the number of Accelerated Reader Quizzes taken in one day.  Last school year, students set a new one-day record of 4,409,622 quizzes.

At California Elementary School, as many as 412 students will take part in this shared effort to top a national reading record.  All students who participate will receive a reading incentive item.

"Read the Most Coast to Coast is a fun-filled event that enables students at multiple grade levels to join in a shared reading challenge," said Shelly Marine, ISS.  "Students are engaging in valuable reading practice, all while taking part in an event that joins students across the country in a collaborative effort focused on reading.  We're so proud of our students."

Renaissance Learning's Accelerated Reader is a K12 program that serves as a platform for teachers to manage independent reading practice.  Students read books at the appropriate level and then take a quiz to show they understood what they've read.  The web-based program provides access to 160,000 quizzes, enabling students to choose from a wide variety of fiction and non fiction books.

During the event, Renaissance Learning will track national quizzes on its hosted database and share progress online.  Educators, parents and interested community members will be able to see progress toward the national goal at
