Pacific Christian School students in grades one through five passed almost 2,000 reading quizzes and read more than 17.5 million words at the halfway point of a yearlong competitive school reading initiative known as Jumped into Reading.

Each class of students competes for the chance to win an ice cream party or celebration by participating in Reading Counts, a software program that tests reading comprehension. The school’s goal is to read 40 million words by the end of the year.

Pacific Christian School administrators will open registration for kindergarten through eighth grades for the 2013-14 school year Jan. 28. 

Registration packets may be picked up in the school office from 8 a.m. to

4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
