Summer Home Run Reading Challenge

DELAND – Volusia County Schools and the Daytona Tortugas are teaming up for the Summer Home Run Reading Challenge. VCS students can win awesome prizes for reading this summer!

Shelldon and Superintendent Dr. Scott Fritz set a goal for VCS students to read 1 million minutes collectively. The challenge is open now through August 15 for students in kindergarten through 8th grade (grade just completed).

It’s easy to participate, and the more the students read, the more prizes they'll earn!

There are two ways for students to log their reading minutes:

  1. Download the ClassLink app, search "Volusia County Schools," and log in with student email address and password; OR
  2. Locate the Beanstack app on the student dashboard.

These are the Challenge levels and prizes:

  • Batter Up: 30 minutes of reading for a Shelldon Baseball Card.
  • 1st Base: +90 more minutes of reading for a Wendy’s prize.
  • 2nd Base: +90 more minutes of reading for a Marco’s Pizza prize.
  • 3rd Base: +90 more minutes of reading for a Dave & Buster’s prize.
  • Home Run: +90 more minutes of reading (total of 390 minutes) for a ticket to the August 21 game of the Daytona Tortugas at Jackie Robinson Ballpark.

Let’s all hit a home run in the Summer Home Run Reading Challenge!
