    Students must read at least 600 minutes between June 8 and August 25 to earn the opportunity to win the prize! 

    Reading minutes must be logged in *Beanstack by August 30th to be eligible for a prize. Students who cannot record their minutes in Beanstack over Summer Break can enter them in Beanstack when they return to school. To count toward the challenge, minutes will need to be dated during Summer Break.

    Go to Then click on the Beanstack icon to get started!

    *NOTE: Students will lose access to Beanstack once Powerschool rosters are cleared to prepare for the new school year (usually around August 1). They will have access to Beanstack again once they are assigned to their new class for next year and can add their minutes after the first day of school!
