Big Month For RocRead Program
School leaders are challenging students to break their January reading record for the month of February, and they've already received quite the gift.
The February installment of RocRead will start during recess on February 18th. Students in grades Pre-K through 12 have been asked to pick a book and read it. They'll write, depending on their grade level, a sentence, paragraph, or a short essay on the book, then hand it in before February 27th.
All participants from the January challenge have received Wegmans coupons for a $6 meal and Rochester Razorsharks tickets.
Rochester City School District staff have delivered more than 16,000 coupons and tickets to students who participated. That's 8,000 city school students.
