It’s Read-a-thon Week!

Whooo's ReadingOur Read-a-thon starts Monday, March 13.

This year we are partnering with Whooo’s Reading, a reading comprehension tool that gets students to practice critical thinking skills by writing about what they read.

Students can log into their accounts, enter the books they have read, and comment on books their friends have read. This is also a fundraiser in which students can ask for sponsorship to read books.

Login information went home in backpacks. If you have questions, contact Marian Ezell at [email protected]
