This year, instead of earning points for READING COUNTS, students will count the number of words read in each book. The following are recommendations set by the OSDE. Sixth grade students have a yearly reading goal of 300,000 words (73,440 words each nine-weeks.) Seventh grade students have a yearly reading goal of 325,000 words (75,600 words each nine-weeks.) As a reminder, these points are required to maintain eligibility for sports and other extracurricular activities. READ TO ACHIEVE!!!!!
