Pocantico Power Readers

Prizes

You may count any reading that is done outside of the classroom, and it can be reading that is assigned by a teacher or any reading for general enjoyment.

To earn weekly prizes, KG-2nd grade students must read at least 90 minutes each week (about 15 minutes per day), 3rd-5th grade students must read at least 120 minutes each week (about 20 minutes per day), and 6th – 8th grade students must read at least 180 minutes each week (about 30 minutes per day.)

All students who turn in reading minutes each of the 4 weeks will have their names added to the Power Reader drawing for a chance to win a Kindle.

Students who reach the Super Power Reader goals by the end of the 4 weeks will have their name added to both the Power Reader drawing and also the Super Power Reader Kindle drawing (see chart below.)
