The Competition is on! READvolution is a partnership between the Carolina Hurricanes and three local public-school systems (Wake County, Durham County, and Chatham County), that promotes reading outside of elementary school classrooms. The program challenges 150 elementary schools to read 2,020 books, asking individual students to perform 20 minutes of reading outside the classroom each day (total of 800 minutes) during the first semester, from Sept. 30 through Nov. 22. Once they achieve their reading goal, students will be rewarded with free tickets to Hurricanes games, school appearances from Stormy and the Pepsi Storm Squad and more. Last season, the READvolution program resulted in over 10 million minutes of reading and nearly 270,000 books read. The class reading the most books will receive a prize. We can do it!
- All students must record their books read and time spent reading by logging onto the Readvolution Dashboard in WakeId. This is vital in capturing student and school participation throughout the campaign.
- If the students are able to get into the application and are experiencing issues with the Readvolution application itself, the support email is ReadVolutionfirstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your participation in the READVOLUTION program and helping Wakelon's students to become lifelong readers and learners in our community!
