Ms. Metz's Million Page Challenge
At the beginning of the school year, Ms. Metz's second grade class read the book Miss Daisy Is Crazy by Dan Gutman. In the book, the class challenged the school to a million page read challenge; we decided to do the same!
The class presented the idea to the principal, Mrs. Rogers, in August. We made promotional posters to hang around the school. We had decided that if we read 750,000 pages, we could have a PJ, popcorn and movie day in celebration. If we read a total of 1,000,000 pages, we could dress up Mrs. Rogers for the day. The students of Olympia South kept track of the pages they read over the course of the year to be tallied. On May 10 we met our goal, and actually exceeded it! Olympia South read a total of 1,012, 234 pages! Way to go!
