Henderson County Schools will host a reading challenge December 21st through April 7th. The challenge involves taking a picture of your child reading or being read to and posting the picture on social media using #HCSRead. Once every three weeks a student will be randomly selected to receive a prize, with the grand prize being a Kindle. Any student Pre-K through 12th grade is eligible to win.

Early exposure to language is the greatest factor in language development and listening to other people read aloud is an important part of learning to read.
