We are beginning our 30th year for students at KHS to be involved in the district reading program, Books Are Habit Forming. BAHF has several components: open library, big buddy reading, SSR, Reading Counts and Battle of the Books. The goal of BAHF is to promote independent reading and make reading an everyday habit at KHS. Over the past 29 year students at KHS have read a total of 252,613 books. (Yes, that is books not points awarded based on size and difficulty of books.)
At the end of the year awards assembly last May, we honored two first grade girls, Allyson S. and Kiera S. for tying our all time record of 500 books each. We're so proud of you. The entire elementary read a total of 6,162 books. Scholastic's Reading Counts now keeps track of the number of words read for the entire year. We ended last school year with a total of 22,403,093 words read! Folks, that's 22 million words!
