Osceola students did their part in a big way to help set a new reading world record in the Scholastic Summer Challenge. The free program encouraged children to read books and log their minutes as they read for the world record during the summer to help avoid the “Summer Slide”, the loss of skills that can happen while out of school. Kids from 7,285 schools worldwide read and logged an impressive 304 million minutes, breaking last year’s world record of 176 million minutes. Boggy Creek Elementary in Osceola County earned the number one spot in the world with students reading close to 11 million minutes alone.

• Send an email to their child's teacher;
• View the school calendar;
• Receive messages from the Osceola School District; and
• Set up alert notifications for attendance, grades, discipline, upcoming assignments, events, and messages.
