LITTLE CYPRESS — On Feb. 28, students at Little Cypress Elementary participated in a nationwide effort to “Read the Most Coast to Coast.” They are among hundreds of thousands of students joining in this third annual reading challenge.

“Read the Most Coast to Coast” encourages students to read more and take part in a one-day effort to beat the record for the number of Accelerated Reader Quizzes taken in one day. Last school year, students across the nation set a new one-day record of 4,409,622 quizzes.

At Little Cypress Elementary, approximately 400 students took part in this shared effort to top a national reading record. All participants received a Certificate of National Participation.
