Peninsula School District invites everyone in the community to join us in our reading challenge. Our goal is to collectively read 1 million minutes by the last day of school, June 21, 2023.

Peninsula Light Company and PSD have collaborated to launch a ‘minutes read’ collection webpage as part of Peninsula Reads. When you’ve completed your reading activity, simply sign in and record how many minutes you read! Use this tool to log your reading minutes.
