Reading Challenge 2022-2023

Submitted by katie.kelly on

This year Payson High School is offering a book challenge to help broaden students’ literary horizons. To complete this challenge you will need to read twenty-four books this school year. Each English teacher will be requiring that you read at least two books a term for a class grade. That means you will need to read at least eight books by the end of the year. That helps you get at least a third of the challenge done.
