Now, Lacoste will have to make good on her promise. The results were tallied recently showing that students read a total of 73,216 minutes.
"The goal is to encourage reading outside of school, and our families were very supportive of the program," said Reading Specialist Donna Bazyk, who organized literacy events for the month. "We want our kids to increase their endurance of reading at home, but we also want them to enjoy reading. The students were so excited to bring in their reading logs every day, and they were disappointed when the reading logs were done.
