All students have the opportunity to participate in Reading CountsTM, an online program that validates independent student reading. Most students who participate in Reading CountsTM increase their reading comprehension, show academic improvement and have higher reading scores on standardized tests. Students who successfully participate earn the privilege of dressing down for our monthly Comfy Cozy Day (pajamas, sweatpants, jeans or whatever clothing they find comfy and cozy). Students who are successful in meeting their goals six out of eight months (September-April) earn the right to participate in the end of the year RC Celebration.
The Reading CountsTM e-catalog can be searched for all Scholastic Books that participate in the program.
