Get Ready for the 
2017 Reading Extravaganza!

Celebrate Literacy & Student Reading Achievements

Please mark your calendars for May 13, 2017! This will be the 15th year of celebrating the literacy accomplishments of our students at the 2017 Reading Extravaganza (formerly the PEP Rally for Educational Excellence)!

Hosted by Duval County Public Schools, students will receive recognition for reading achievements, enjoy fun-filled activities, hear local celebrities reading their favorite children’s books, and watch student performances. 

Be sure to stop by sponsor booths for literacy information, free giveaways, character breakfast, and food trucks. There is no cost for attendance, and it is open to the entire community!
Reading Medal Pick-Up for Students:
  • Students need to meet Annual Reading Expectation by Grade Level (Click Here for expectations)

  • Students need to bring and show Certificate of Achievement in order to pick-up medal at the 2017 Reading Extravaganza.
