Our school does a school wide "Iditaread" about the same time as the local, well known, Iditarod Sled Dog Race.
The Iditarod Headquarters is just down the road from our school in the city of Wasilla, Alaska.
Several staff members know mushers who race in the famous race.
During the our annual “Iditaread” our students attempt to read one minute for every mile of the Iditarod.
This spread sheet was created to keep track of which “checkpoint” each child is on. Each week, simply enter the number of minutes each student reads and the spreadsheet will do all the work!
