CHAMPION reading is a reading incentive program that encourages EWMS students to read outside of assigned reading. CHAMPION reading utilizes Reading Counts to encourage students to read on their own. Reading Counts is a program that helps students pick books that are on their reading level and based on their interests. The main goal of CHAMPION reading is for students to read on their own and reach the ”milestones” at their own pace. The focus is on the number of words read. It is not required.
One of our School Wide Goals this year is: EWMS will move from 0 words read to 100 Million words read by April 30th, 2022. To achieve this goal we will:
Participation in Champion Reading will also allow us to reach our goal.

What can I do if there isn't a quiz for the book my student is reading?
What times of the day can a quiz be taken at school?
Quizzes may be taken at home or at school. Teachers may allow other times on an individual basis.
Why can quizzes only be taken between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.?
These are times set by Scholastic (the company that sponsors Reading Counts). No one at EWMS has the ability to change these times.
