We have read 3,255 books. It is our goal to hit 5,000 books by December 6th. 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 time frame (for a total of 800 minutes) will receive TWO complimentary ticket vouchers to a Hurricanes home game.  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 2020.


Upon reading a certain number of books, school-level prizes will include the following:

  • 3,500 Chicken Dance with Mrs. Nelson
  • 4,000 Bring a Board Game
  • 4,500 Admin Sumo Wrestlers
  • 5,000 Admin Kisses a Pig
