Reading Challenge (Grades K-6)
January 1, 2019 - February 28, 2019
Mason Shines Again in Reading Challenge
25,000 books and more than 250,000 minutes read, $72,000 donated and collected for Mason Schools Foundation
Every year starts off with a fun festival-like atmosphere and shenanigans at MECC, Western Row and Mason Intermediate as K-6th grade students and staff participate in the annual Reading Challenge. Students are encouraged to read for many hours and collect pledges from family and friends in support of their great work. The teachers and administration get very involved and challenge the students by offering to do various stunts and events for them based on how much they read during the challenge. It is a fun way to start out the year and for students and parents alike to support this great organization. All pledges go directly towards grants from the foundation back to their schools and classrooms!
