Hey Pearl C. Readers! I've got some exciting news for you! Our school has been selected to participate in a special reading program that will make you eligible for lots of prizes and rewards for each book that you read this year. Now, we all know that reading is a reward in itself...what could be a better prize than being a strong reader for life? However, some organizations like to throw in some smaller perks along the way...and so our school will get to benefit of some of those little extras.
Starting the week after Thanksgiving, we will start tracking your reading. After 5 books, 10 books, 15 books, 20 books, and 25 books, you will be eligible for a new prize. Prizes include backpacks, water bottles, watches, and more. Tickets to college basketball games and visits from college coaches are also possibilities. Also, every single student will be receiving a free one-year subscription to "Sports Illustrated for Kids", delivered to your home! Now, that's pretty cool!
Don't forget that you will still be eligible to receive punches for the "Ice Cream for Books" program and 6th graders are still participating in "Book It." There are plenty of good reasons to read at Pearl C. this year so hope to see you in the library SOON!
Ms. Embry :-)
