Beverly Cleary School's Reading Challenge Program


The Reading Challenge Program is a year-round incentive-based reading program sponsored by the Beverly Cleary School PTA.  Reading Challenge is designed to encourage and celebrate reading by rewarding students who challenge themselves to reach their reading goals. Any Beverly Cleary student can join Reading Challenge at any time.  And it's fun!


All books count!  Students read what they want, how they want, and when they want.  Chapter Books, eBooks, Picture Books, Audio Books, Graphic Novels, Comic Books...every page counts!  Reading Challenge tracks the number of pages read...pages read by students and pages read to students.


The total number of pages accumulates for each student year-round for their entire career at Beverly Cleary School. So, the longer a student participates, the more pages they can count toward their reading goal. Even Summer reading counts!


Participating students record the book titles, authors, and number of pages they've read on the tracking forms available in the school libraries on each campus.  Completed forms are submitted in the marked inboxes located on each campus by the 15thof each month.  Students receive awards, such as bookstore gift certificates, medals and trophies, and Lunch with the Principal!
