Million Word Challenge

St. Anne School & Preschool Academy strives to foster a love of reading. Each school year, students are encouraged to participate in the “Million Word Challenge” (modified, of course, for our younger students).


Highlights of the program:

  • Students have a personal goal of reading 1 million words during the school year (September through May).

  • Classrooms participate in quarterly classroom goals set as a class. Rewards are given to each classroom that meets their goal. 

  • Teachers may choose to use reporting activities. For example: oral reports, book talks, group sharing, book displays, etc.
