Six Flags Read to Succeed - Student Reading Logs Due Friday, 2/10/17

IAT is participating in the Six Flags Read to Succeed Program again this year.

I will enter your students information on the Six Flags Reading website. So, all you have to do is encourage your students to read!

Students have to read 6 hours (360 minutes) and record his/her reading times on the attached Reading Logs. Students can read books, ebooks, magazines, newspapers, or comic books. Students can read independently, or parents can read to younger students.

The due date for the Reading Log to be returned to school is Friday, February 10th. Please send the completed logs to the Main Office as soon as you get them so I can enter them into the computer.

A special perk for teachers! If you have 8 students that complete the 6 hours of reading and turn in their completed Reading Log, you will receive a free Six Flags ticket!

Thank you for encouraging your students to read!
