Winners of the 2024 Read-a-Thon

Results are in for the 2024 Read-a-Thon!

We are excited to announce the winners of the 2024 Roden Read-a-Thon! We had a total of 99 participants, all of whom read for 70,543 minutes. That’s 1,176 days and 49 hours of reading.

  • Winning class for the most minutes read: Ms. Barnett’s Grade 2 class (Area 31) with 9,744 minutes, for more than 160 hours (almost 7 days) reading. This was an increase of 35% over last year’s winning class.
  • Winning class for the greatest percentage of participants: Ms. Robichaud’s Grade 3 class, with 11 participants out of 20 students. These students read for 8,602 minutes (just over 143 hours, for a total of almost 6 days of reading).

Both classes win a pizza party on the day of their choosing. Parents/caregivers will be kept in the loop.

Literacy bingo: For the first time this year, we did a literacy bingo game and we were thrilled with how many kids opted in. All participants were entered into a random draw and three winners were chosen:

  1. Nash W. (Ms.Robichaud / Grade 3)
  2. Tiffany W. (Mr.Nivan / Grade 6)
  3. Sapphire D. (Ms.Revoredo / SK)

Individual winners and bingo winners will each receive a $20 gift card to Swag Sisters Toy Store (JK to Grade 3) or Queen Books (Grades 4 to 8). Thank you to all the students who participated and the teachers and caregivers who supported them.

Have a great week and keep reading!
