The 30,000 PAGES CHALLENGE!
The academic benefits of reading for fun outside of the regular school day are immeasurable. Therefore JDB is happy to announce the 30,000 PAGES CHALLENGE. If the students of JDB work together to read a total of 30,000 pages between November 1 and June 5 they will be treated to a pizza lunch.
So far 29,012 pages have been read and 82% of JDB students have participated. We are close to part of the goal. The goal has two components. First reading 30,000 pages and second 100% student participation. Both goals must be met before the pizza lunch will take place.
Please see the JDB PTO web page for information about a new and easy fundraiser through the My Coke Rewards program.
