WEST JORDAN (News4Utah)-The students at Columbia Elementary School are creating a legacy in a big way.
At the beginning of the school year, they were challenged to spend 2 million minutes reading.
Well…it’s the end of the year and the students reached their goal. Better yet, they surpassed their goal!
The students read for a total of 2,147,097 minutes.
On Wednesday the school celebrated at an assembly. The students who read the most minutes were awarded with 5-pound chocolate candy bars, teacher were forced to dye their hair purple and student were covered in silly string.
Way to go Columbia Elementary School!
