Jackson Avenue School placed third in the nation for the most minutes read during a reading challenge hosted by the app, LightSail. Students in the building normally utilize the app, but during the challenge were given special incentives by Principal Dr. Janet Gonzalez to increase their reading minutes. The challenge, which ran Jan. 9 through Feb. 10, garnered more than 20,000 minutes from top classes like Karen Curran’s fourth-graders. For their efforts, Dr. Gonzalez rewarded them with extra recess time and an ice cream sundae party. In addition, the top three individual readers were recognized with certificates and a gift card from Dr. Gonzalez. Congratulations to top readers Korina Hung, Luke Martinez and Mohamed Siddiqui.
