On Saturday September 19, Mr. Swenson ran the Top of Utah Marathon located in Logan, Utah. This race is 26.2 miles long. He challenged the students of PJHS to read 26 minutes a day. The Principal’s Reading Marathon ended on September 31.
Students who read at least 26 minutes a day will be entered into a drawing for prizes. Parents or teachers must sign the entry form that students have completed their daily reading. The more days that students read 26 minutes, the more entries students will have in the drawing. Also, all students who qualify for the drawing the week of Sept. 14 to Sept. 18 guessed Mr. Swenson’s finishing time. Prizes such as iPods, movie passes, and sport equipment were given for the students who guess the closest time. Mr. Swenson’s time was 3 hours 57 minutes and 20 seconds. Excellent time Mr. Swenson!
