HCE Hornets Win Rocket's Read to Achieve! Program

Congratulations to Hollibrook Elementary for taking first place in the Houston Rockets Read to Achieve program! Hollibrook students, grades one through five, read a total of 746,975 minutes and PreK/Kinder students read another 20,000 minutes.

The Houston Rockets Read to Achieve program is designed to promote the value and fun of reading for elementary students grades one to five. The contest was open to schools across the Houston. The goal is to see which school could read the most minutes during the month of March.

Leading the reading charge was librarian Kari Heitman. Here is what she did to capture the interest of her campus students and staff:

• Signs in the cafeteria
• Weekly updates total minutes read per grade
• Read-a-thon on March 8th
• Book Fair the week before Spring Break
• Library activities for Read Across America week along with Hat Day
• Principal and Librarian presented two book readings using VBrick broadcasting system.

Key to their success promote - promote - promote with school wide involvement.

The Rockets organization will be coming to Hollibrook Elementary in May for a school rally. Awesome job Hollibrook!
