Challenge accepted. Challenge completed! The TK-3 students at Barrington, Bonita, Hunt and Von Renner Elementary Schools have  just completed the 16 Million Word Challenge. Congratulations! 

On Wednesday, October 7, 2018 at the School Ready Initiative Press Conference Superintendent Fillpot unveiled an 8 Million Word Challenge. This challenge was for our NCLUSD Elementary Students, grades Kindergarten to 3rd, to read 8 million words using the Footsteps2Brilliance and Clever Kids U Apps before March 1, 2019. In less than one month our TK-3 students totaled 8,226,134 words and completed the 8 Million Word Challenge. Superintendent Fillpot announced the challenge completion at the December School Board meeting and re-challenged NCLUSD students to double their 8 million words to read 16 million words before March 1, 2019. 

As of January 18, 2019 students have read 16,027,586 words, officially completing the 16 Million Word Challenge in less than six weeks! 

Congratulations again to all who completed the 8 Million Word Challenge and the 16 Million Word Challenge! Stay tuned for the next challenge.
