    Students in Grades 4 and 5 are challenged to read at least twelve books on the Soda Float List, which is compiled from two different Children's Choice award lists (see below). The lists are announced each spring, and students have nearly a year to do the reading required. A soda float reading celebration party is held in late April or early May for those who have completed the Challenge!
