Read 180 Student of the Year

Our Read 180 Student of the Year, Alexie Evan, poses with the K-1 class in front of the iRead library from Scholastic (pictured front row left to right: Hunter Olson, Kay-Kay Galila, Joshua Ouya, Andre Tugatuk, Donovan Chingliak, and Joel Roberts. Back row: Alexie Evan).

Rocky Mountain School received the $1800.00 library as part of the prestigious Scholastic award won by Alexie last school year.  As many of you recall, Alexie was one of only four students chosen nationwide after reading 1 million words by Christmas of last school year. By the time the year was up, he had exceeded the 2 million mark!  

Scholastic donated a $1000 voucher to the school of each of the 4 winning students, including RMS. When his teacher, Sherri Carmichael, contacted the company to have the funds applied towards half of the iRead library for our K-2 students, Scholastic happily volunteered to almost double our voucher to allow us to order the entire library!

Thanks to Alexie's determination and Scholastic's generosity, our students have received a great gift that many classes will enjoy for years to come!
