We hope to see you there :)

Six Flags Reading

First Grade Teachers highly encourage students to participate in the Six Flags Six Hour Reading Club. Students must log all of their reading for 6 hours or 360 minutes. If students complete their log by FEBRUARY 26th they will be eligible for a FREE six flags ticket!

Independent reading done during literacy stations in the classroom will count towards the 6 hours. Teachers will log those minutes for your student, but reading done at home will help your student reach the full 6 hours!

Happy Reading :)
