Eager Reader (1/7 – 2/1)

Eager Reader began on January 7! The program will run for 4 weeks. Information packets are available online.

What is Eager Reader? 

The Eager Reader Program is a voluntary reading program sponsored by the PTSA. It is designed to encourage students to read for their enjoyment outside of school. By giving away prizes along the way, students and parents will both have a fun incentive to participate and connect through the shared pleasure of reading. To earn prizes, LRC I, II, and K-2nd grade students must read or be read to for 120 minutes each week, and 3rd-5th grade students must read 180 minutes each week.
