Kurn Hattin Students Take Part In National Reading Challenge
February 29, 2012 | Westminster, Vermont – Students at Kurn Hattin are reading in the halls, reading in the malls, preparing to take part in “Read The Most From Coast To Coast,” on March 2, 2012.
“Read The Most From Coast To Coast,” a national event, challenges students to shatter the national one-day record for Accelerated Reader Quiz-taking. Accelerated Reader, reading management software program for K-12 schools, helps educators measure and improve reading comprehension levels. “Read The Most From Coast To Coast,” enables students to take part in a shared reading adventure, and at the same time, show the world they understood what they’ve read. All students who take part in this nationwide challenge will be eligible to receive a Certificate of National Participation.
The one-day record is well above 2 million quizzes. On March 2, educators will be able to see the progress toward the national goal at www.renlearn.com/readthemost.
“We’re excited about the event,” said Scott Tabachnick, School Principal at Kurn Hattin. “We expect to see many happy faces when the national Accelerated Reader quiz goal is shattered.”
Kurn Hattin Homes is a year-round, charitable home and school for in-need and at-risk boys and girls, ages 6-15, from throughout the northeast.
