(Lee’s Summit) –  Summit Christian Academy (SCA) recently challenged the first grade classes to the annual “Goody, Goody, Gumball” reading competition to prompt students to get excited about reading. Students received a gumball sticker for every 30 minutes they read. Together, the forty-seven students from the three first grade classes read 23,315 minutes, which is an average of 496 minutes per student!

The top two winners from each class received a Barnes and Noble gift card and gum balls.
