Welcome to the Six Flags Read to Succeed Six Hour Reading Club!

Nichols is participating in an exciting program that encourages students in grades K through 6 to read for fun. Read to Succeed is a free program sponsored by Six Flags Theme Parks.

Every student who completes six hours of recreational reading before the school’s deadline noted below is eligible for a free admission ticket valid at one participating Six Flags Theme Parks.

Students will develop a greater appreciation for books when they see that you think reading is important too. You are sure to have fun as you investigate the world of reading together!

For more information, see the Nichols Library website at https://sites.google.com/a/friscoisd.org/nichols-library/six-flags-read-to-succeed-program.

All forms are due by Friday, February 20!
