-Reads for 1 hour: 1 FREE General Admission Ticket

-Reads for 2 hours: 2 FREE General Admission Tickets

-Reads for 3 hours: in addition to the 2 tickets, they can participate in a parade

-Reads for 4 hours: in addition to the 2 tickets, parade, they will get a FREE shaved ice and get unlimited rides on the Goliath Inflatable

Students need to have their parent/guardian/teachers sign off on their reading log that they have read for the 4 hours and turn it in to the Learning Commons.This program starts on April 18th and runs until May 9th. Reading logs can be found in the Learning Commons, on the Learning Commons Schoology course, and with ELA teachers.
