For the second consecutive year, we will partner with the Carolina Hurricanes to bring READvolution to all of our elementary schools and Power Play to all of our middle schools.
This exciting partnership will support a community-wide literacy campaign around daily reading outside of school for elementary students, and fitness and its relationship to better learning for middle school students.
This year, the READvolution time frame will be between Monday, Sept. 24 and Friday, Nov. 16. The challenge features both individual and school-wide components, as well as goals for each. Students who achieve the goal of reading 20 minutes per day throughout the allotted time frame (for a total of 800 minutes) will receive TWO complimentary ticket vouchers to a Hurricanes home game.
The school-wide component of the challenge includes the tracking of books read collectively at the school site. Schools who report students reading at least 2,020 books will be entered into a drawing to attend a "Cool School Field Trip" at the PNC Arena to participate in fun activities, and hear from Hurricanes players in February 2019.
Students who reach their individual goals will receive TWO complimentary tickets to a Carolina Hurricanes game. The school with the highest percentage of students meeting their goals may earn a Carolina Hurricanes Field Day event at their school in spring 201
