We have read 4,808 books. It is our goal to hit 5,000 books by December 6th. If we meet our goal before then, we will set our next goal which will focus on minutes. We will work to read 416,000 minutes. 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:

  • 5,000 Admin Kisses a Pig  
  • 416,000 minutes Recess for an hour a day for a week
