Bikes for Books Update

posted Apr 18, 2014, 9:15 AM by Iris Meehan   [ updated Apr 18, 2014, 9:18 AM ]
Our Bikes for Books reading incentive program is almost at the halfway point. Many of our students have been reading well above the expectations in order to earn entry tickets. We are encouraging all students to read and get entry tickets for several reasons. First, with or without a special incentive, we hope that all students will learn what a life long learning experience reading is. Next, we are encouraging students to read even if they don’t feel they need the bicycle. What a great opportunity to “pay it forward” by giving the bicycle to a family member or friend if they don’t really need it. Finally... we need at least 75% of all students to read and get entry tickets in order for us to have an afternoon of kickball games and ice cream sundaes. Please talk with your child(ren) about the additional bonus offered over vacation and encourage them to read, read, read!
