Read to Achieve is underway!
Last Friday you should have received a copy of the Read To Achieve information packet home in your child’s folder. The program began on Monday, January 21st and runs through February 15th. Read to Achieve is done in combination with the Springfield Armor Basketball team and is designed to help your child develop good reading habits by encouraging them to read for at least 20 minutes 5 days a week. Prizes will be given out during the month to keep your child motivated to reach their goal.
At the end of the program, if your child has met the required reading, they will win a FREE ticket to the Springfield Armor Basketball game on FRIDAY, MARCH 15th (parents can purchase additional discounted tickets) at which time they will be recognized on the basketball court as part of a special parade.
Attached is the Reading Log that you and your child need to complete each night in case you need an extra copy. Please remember that the “claim” ticket needs to be cut out and returned each Monday during the program.
Of Special Note: The Friendly’s coupon says it is valid at participating Springfield, MA locations, but the Springfield Armor has confirmed that Connecticut Friendly’s will also accept this coupon.
