Apollo Elem. students named top readers in LA | Community Spirit
Story courtesy the Bossier Parish School Board:
Challenge Apollo Rockets to succeed and they will exceed expectations.
Principal Julie Dupree signed up Apollo for the "Scholastic Summer Challenge to Read for the World" record. She challenged her students to be among the top winners in the nation. Let's just say they were busy readers over the summer and did not disappoint. Apollo students read a total of 175,296 minutes! That is the equivalent of nearly 2,922 hours or 122 days reading non-stop.
Apollo recently received notice that it was number one in Louisiana and was given an award from Scholastic.
Congratulations Apollo Rockets for being named world record holders!
