Six Flags Read to Succeed

The Six Flags Read to Succeed program has started! If you would like your child to participate, they will need to fill out the Student Reading Log that went home with your children & record 6 hours (360 minutes) of reading by Friday, February 20th. These forms need to be turned in to your child's classroom teacher upon completion. Each child who returns their reading log will receive a ticket to Six Flags Great America! Happy Reading! Remember, reading on MyOn counts as time reading, too!
