This exciting partnership supports a community-wide literacy campaign around daily reading outside of school, plus allows students the chance to attend a Hurricanes game. READvolution is open now through Dec. 6. Your child will be able to be part of this event by reading daily for 20 minutes. Through an online tracking system, students will provide their name and the number of minutes read each day.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. You can find instructions and login information here: Readvolution Tools
