Fun facts about three: It is the number of good fortune, the first number that forms a geometrical figure – the triangle, which is considered the number of harmony, wisdom and understanding — and it is the milestone we just hit because of all of you!
APS Race2Read has reached 3 million minutes and counting, as we inch closer to reaching our 2020-2021 goal of 10-million minutes as part of the 2020-2021 citywide reading challenge.
