Spring Reading Challenge

Our Afterschool kids wrapped up a very successful Spring Reading Challenge on April 30 with a celebration field trip to the Kroc Swimming Center.  For more than 3 months beginning in mid-January, each student in 2nd-5th grade was challenged to read 30 minutes a day, in addition to his or her normal homework.  The kids did a great job, surpassed their collective reading minutes goal, and had much fun exploring the many new books that Neighborhood Focus purchased with its grant from the Neill M. Timmons Foundation.
