As we close on another amazing school year in Alabama, we want to send you off for the summer with highlights from dedicated students and staff in the very last month of school. These are TRUE #MonumentalAchievers to the very end!
In the months to come, we hope to learn that your end-of-year results for ALL schools in Alabama are a positive reflection of the tireless hard work and dedication by teachers and students alike. And we hope Stride was instrumental in helping you achieve your student achievement goals this year! (If yes, we'd love to hear your story!)
First Grader Grayson Captures First Place in the School! E.R. Dickson Elementary, Mobile County
Meet Grayson Heath, a 1st Grade student at E. R. Dickson Elementary School in Mobile County. Grayson climbed to the top of the leaderboards to claim 1st Place in the entire school during their 3rd Quarter Stride Contest!
Grayson worked tirelessly in Stride to build up 1,499,205 Star Points in the Stride games! WOW!
Something tells us Grayson will login to Stride over the summer to keep up his momentum strong, and have fun while maintaining and growing his skills!

Phillips Academy Millionaires Club Accumulates 70 Million Star Points Together! John Herbert Phillips Academy, Birmingham City Schools
Phillips Academy launched their "Millionaire's Club" program for students who have done an exceptional job maintaining academic excellence. As evidenced by their individual Star Point totals, which range from 1 million to 18 million for the school year, these students have achieved high goals working to strengthen educational weaknesses using Stride, one of the most popular resources at the school, staff say.
Phillips faculty believe that each of these students have truly become “Stride Hall of Famers," and we could not agree more! Their efforts have awarded them a coveted place in the Millionaires Club, and have established a legacy for students to follow in their footsteps for the school year ahead.
Congratulations to these 59 members of the Millionaires Club, listed below in rank from the highest number of Star Points earned. We are speechless!
