Meet Kiruvel, a fifth-grader in Ms. Sawyer's class at Rocky Mountain Prep Creekside. He met his goal of reading one million words — that's the length of the entire Harry Potter series — in just the first two weeks of school!
Kiruvel's favorite books are the Warriors series by Erin Hunter, and he loves reading because books transport him to another world.
His achievement was an incredibly impactful moment for the school, and it kicked off the momentum for other students to speed toward their goals. Kiruvel, who was featured in a CBS Colorado news story, showed everyone — even Governor Polis! — what’s possible when you create passion for reading.
