Several University Park Elementary School students were named Super Star Readers, after the second annual Reach for the Stars reading challenge at the school in the Gateway School District.
Students were challenged to read, or be read to, for 300 minutes in a two-week period. Those who read 1,000 minutes, or for kindergarten and first grade, 600 minutes, achieved Super Star Reader status.
Students in the program run by Usborne Books & More, part of Educational Development Corp., also were asked to collect pledges, 75 percent of which went back to them to select new books. The rest went to their classrooms, and the company also donated $180 in books to the University Park library.
