Oklahoma’s First Lady Kim Henry has joined an effort along with the spouces of several other governors to promote reading. As a reading ambassador for the Scholastic Summer Challenge
, she is encouraging students to read four or more books this summer.
More than 55,000 students in the United States have signed up and have recorded more than 49 million minutes of reading. As part of the program, 500 books were donated to fourth and fifth grade students at Rockwood Elementary School.
To join the effort this summer, students can log on and record their minutes of reading. Happy reading!
