Read to Achieve Reading Program
3rd Street Elementary is once again participating in this year's LA Clippers Read to Achieve Program which challenges students to take time out to read. Each participating student is asked to track the number of minutes they spend reading during the 6-week program.
The elementary and middle schools that track the most minutes read during the 6-week challenge will receive a virtual Reading Timeout visit from a member of the Clippers Read To Achieve Squad! The squad includes Clippers Mascot Chuck the Condor, Clippers Current and Alumni Players and Clippers staff. The top 3 students in each grade level (Pre-K/TK through 8th grade) in the overall program (all schools combined) will
have the opportunity be featured on the Clippers Read to Achieve website and will receive a Clippers prize pack, which could include Clippers gear, books and school supplies. Students will also earn badges when they hit reading milestones and will be eligible for prizes throughout the program.
Tracking starts on Monday, November 2 and ends on Friday, December 11. Additionally, all minutes will be tracked online.
Please see the attached for information on how to register and track minutes online.
