Midyear Impact Results and February News

Midyear Impact ResultsHalfway through the school year, the Dream Team has been busy, but not as busy as our children and families – reading a total of 290,596 minutes, exploring 55,690 books together! Wow! We are so proud to share all this success, and all these stories, with our supporters.Program SpotlightThe 100+ ClubThis time of year, our Book Coaches encourage families and teachers to help their student read their way into the 100+ Club. Any student that reads 100 or more minutes on their Always Reading Tablet throughout the month gets to join the club, and will be entered into a drawing to receive a (very bookish) prize! 
We are thrilled to report that 350 students joined the 100+ Club this December. To sweeten the deal, our Book Coaches worked with teachers to incentivize students to join the club with a super fun pizza party in their classroom. Lots of books and lots of pizza have happened lately!
