Do you know you have 408 hours of holiday break to look forward to? What will you possibly do with all of that time? Travel, eat, sleep, watch movies, wrap and unwrap gifts, cuddle with your pets, sing songs, binge-watch YouTube videos and hone your gaming skills? How about adding reading to that “to do” list? Over the holiday break, Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Webb are challenging Durham Wildcats to read at least 20 minutes each day. Twenty minutes a day will total 340 mins or only 5.6 hours of your 408 hours of hustle and bustle. Grab a magazine, a newspaper, a comic book, a novel, or a nonfiction book, a recipe, pretty much anything with words, and celebrate the JOY of READING this season.
The challenge starts Friday, December 20th at 4:15 pm and ends Sunday, January 5th at 11:59pm.
Students who complete the challenge will be celebrated with a special treat upon return to school in January.
Note: Biblionasium logins are the same as school computer logins.
