Are You Ready For Some Footsteps?!
Are You Ready For Some Footsteps?!

Tuesday, October 01, 2019

The words have been counted, the ipads have been drained and the dust has officially settled on the first annual Are You Ready For Some Footsteps Playoffs. Congratulations Mrs. Van Dyke's 2nd Grade Class on being crowned champions! This group of 25 students read nearly 2 MILLION WORDS in a one week span to clench the title! We couldn't be more proud of our champions, the playoff teams and all the students who participated. Stay tuned for our next Footsteps2Brilliance Challenge! 

Are You Ready For Some Footsteps?! kicked off on October 1, 2019 and will run through December 9, 2019. Students in grades TK-3 will compete in weekly match-ups with another class in the district for a week long read off. After a complete week the class with the most words read wins the match-up and improves their overall record. After seven weeks of competition the four classes with the best records will advance to the playoffs. 

Follow along here on our district website for the complete list of match-ups and updated standings every Tuesday! 

Good luck to all our readers!
