Winterpock celebrates reading success

Posted on

Over the summer, Chesterfield County elementary students read 5 million minutes in the Redskins Read Across Richmond program. Winterpock Elementary had the highest total minutes — 429,053 — and won a Redskins reading rally. Washington Redskins Chris Baker and Akeem Davis visited Winterpock Elementary on Sept. 16 to congratulate students and staff members and to encourage them to keep reading. They spoke to a school assembly, visited several classrooms and had lunch with the 40 students who logged the most reading minutes over the summer.
