Promote and inspire reading growth with Read to the Final Four®

To leave a lasting, positive impact on the third grade students of Metro Atlanta, the NCAA® and Atlanta Basketball Host Committee have teamed up for Read to the Final Four!

The program encourages and inspires local third graders to achieve reading growth with several participation options. The main event is an engaging, bracketed reading competition that uses a digital literacy platform, powered by Renaissance myON®, to provide access to books and track time spent reading.

Classrooms competed as a school-wide third grade reading team and advanced through rounds of competition, which concluded with EJ Swint Elementary School in Clayton County winning first place!

Congratulations to every student and educator who participated in the reading competition! Your efforts to achieve and inspire reading growth produced amazing results!
