Superintendent's Literacy Challenge - Read and Compete!
Take part in the Superintendent's Literacy Challenge from now until March 2023. Students in grades PreK-8 can read, or be read to, and then record the minutes in an online portal. Those minutes will be tallied for the student, the school, and the district. See how you compare to other students in the school and see how your school stacks up against other schools in the district. It's a great time to start a new year's resolution to read more with your child!
Take part in the challenge by:
1. Visit newburghschools.org/read or click here
2. Enter your child's ID Number and Date of Birth
3. In the Add New Reading Minutes Box, enter the date you/your child read. The number of minutes read that day, and parent email address, and optionally what books you read. Touch or click Submit.
4. Each day check out the Daily Bonus Challenges and click on Claim Bonus if you completed that challenge.
