Let’s end the school year strong by reading and creating your own stories in Rally Round Reading, powered by the Footsteps2Brilliance app!


To add a little fun, we’re providing fun prizes to our Top 10 readers. The contest will run from May 1-21. And the Top 10 readers will get a yard sign, a wristband, and a pizza (compliments of our friends at Peddler’s Pizza).


 The Top 10 readers will be selected based on total interaction in the app May 1-21. 


So far for the month of May, students in grades Pre-K-third grade have read 4,043 books and logged in 330 hours


Please remember to log-in (access) the Rally Round Greenville F2B apps on May 21 in order to log any activity that occurred outside the city of Greenville.
