Inspiration for learning all summer long!

Read to Ride

Is your school participating in the Read to Ride program? If so, just log 500 minutes of reading (that is really just 20 minutes for 25 days) over the summer and turn in the passport to your school by September 8, 2017 to be entered into the drawing for a new bike or helmet! This challenge can be done in collaboration with any other reading programs (scholastic, local libraries, etc).
