Teen Read Week culminated on Friday, October 14, with the conclusion of the ILC's fall reading challenge, Eagles Read: Pageapalooza, as well as a Drop Everything and Read and a spray paint t-shirt Do Something Cool.
Pageapalooza was a six-week team or individual reading challenge that began in early September. The nearly 100 students and staff members who registered read as many pages as possible for fun for a chance to win a Kindle Fire.
Team Sofishticated, consisting of freshmen Ashley Alm, Isabella Frank, Alexandra Lynch, and Nick Slobodian, came in first place, reading a total of 43,734 pages. Each received a Kindle Fire.
The two top individual readers who were not part of the winning team also received a Kindle Fire. Those students were freshman Isis Ramos, who read 15,644 pages, and sophomore Faith Clay, who read 14,489 pages. Sophomore Anna Gundlach, who read 10,894 pages, also won a Kindle Fire as part of a raffle; the names of all of the students who remembered to submit their page totals on time all six weeks of the contest were entered into the drawing. The ILC also raffled off weekly Amazon gift cards to participants throughout the challenge.
Also to celebrate Teen Read Week, Lakes had a Drop Everything and Read day on Friday, October 14, and the ILC invited students to participate in its Friday Do Something Cool program, during which students spray painted "Read"-themed t-shirts. View our photo gallery below.
