DLH Academy Students to Take Part in National Reading Celebration

Students at DLH Academy are preparing for a nationwide effort to “Read the Most Coast to Coast” on Friday, February 27. We are among hundreds of thousands of students who will join in this fourth-annual reading celebration.

Read the Most Coast to Coast celebrates reading with a one-day event that encourages students to read as much as they can. Last school year, students set a new one-day record of 4,987,949 books read. Students will also complete Accelerated Reader Quizzes on the books they read.

At DLH Academy, as many as 200 students will take part in this shared effort to read the most and be a part of something big. 

“Read the Most Coast to Coast is a fun-filled event that enables students at multiple grade levels to join in a shared reading challenge,” said Mr. Oliver,  “Students are engaging in valuable reading practice, all while taking part in an event that joins students across the country in a collaborative effort focused on reading. We’re so proud of our students.”

Renaissance Learning’s Accelerated Reader is a K12 program that serves as a platform for teachers to manage independent reading practice. Students read books at the appropriate level and then take a quiz to show they understood what they’ve read. The web-based program provides access to over 160,000 quizzes, enabling students to choose from a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction books.

During the event, Renaissance Learning will track national quizzes on its hosted database and share progress online. Educators, parents, and interested community members will be able to see progress toward the national goal at
