Akin Road Elementary wins reading challenge

For the second year in a row, Sara Drazkowski’s fifth-graders were among the top 100 classes in the country in the Pizza Hut Book-It reading challenge.

To win, they logged more than 130,000 minutes reading.

Their literacy prowess won the entire school a pizza party on Wednesday — and on top of that, the school was selected at random among the top classes to receive a visit from Jeff Kinney, author of the bestselling “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” books.

Kinney spent the day at Akin Road Elementary, where he spoke to the whole school about his journey to becoming an author.
