High School Reading Challenge

Reading is the key to knowledge and adventure. This year, we are challenging all kids from ages 9 to 13 to read all 24 books on this list and fill out the assessments for at least 12 of them. Once you have sent at least 12 of the flip books back to us and have a parent confirm you have read all 24 books, you will receive a certificate and a prize!

The forum is also open for students to discuss their thoughts.
