Reading Challenge

Wood Middle School’s 2nd Annual Reading Challenge will take place March 25th – April 7th! Your student is encouraged to read, read, read!

Students will get their reading log this week (reading goals will be set by English teacher or parents), and students will log their daily reading time. Make sure to keep reading over Spring break!

Turn in the reading log by April 10. Students who meet or exceed their goals will be entered into a drawing for a Books Inc gift card! Parents/ guardians whose students meet or exceed their goals will be entered into their own drawing for a gift card!
