Congratulations to Mrs. Balentine's 3rd period class for winning Achieve3000's Read to Succeed contest, the national race to accelerated literacy achievement!

From all the classes in the school who completed Achieve3000 lessons over the contest period, Mrs. Balentine's 3rd period class completed the most. It's proven that the more Achieve3000 lessons students complete, the greater their reading gains, and her students have built remarkable reading gains over the contest period.

Great job, Mrs. Balentine & her 3rd period class!
