Million Minute Reading Program Begins at Tamarac Elementary
Tamarac Elementary School launched a million minute reading program to encourage reading throughout the community. Their goal is for the school wide community to read a million minutes by the end of the school year. Every month, the participants are given a goal of how many minutes need to be reached to accomplish their final goal of a million minutes at the end of the school year. The October goal of 138,510 minutes was reached and exceeded with more than 143,000 minutes read! As a reward for reaching their goal, Tamarac Elementary School Principal Karen Lederman dressed up in something out of the ordinary. “Reading is one of my passions. I was thrilled when our community reached our first reading benchmark,” said Lederman. “Dressing "silly" was the least I could do to express my excitement at the accomplishment!” Posted 11/15/13.
