Rising Kindergarteners: 15 minutes a day for at least 60 days (900 minutes/15 hours)
Rising 1st-5th Graders: 30 minutes a day for at least 60 days (1800 minutes/30 hours)

Why do we SOAR at Eastover?
Studies have shown that students who do not read or practice math skills over the summer come to school two to three months behind. The US Department of Education found that, generally, the more students read for fun on their own time, the higher their reading score.
