Gear Up for Race to Read in Grades 1st – 8th

Plain Text

From April 12th through May 10th we will be holding a reading challenge that is individual based, but also competes with Trinity and Canyon Creek schools.

Each week students will have a race car coloring sheet to fill out that corresponds to their reading (each section to color equals 15 minutes of reading). Once the whole form is colored a parent will sign off on it and it will be turned in to the teacher. There is a new sheet each week along with prizes each week!

During this time, our school will be competing with Trinity and Canyon schools. There will be a racing board placed in each school to be displayed so students can see who is in the lead each week!

The grand prize for students to win is a ticket to get into the races for free on Saturday, May 25th. Not only will the students get to watch the races, but there will also be the ultimate principal showdown! The three principals from the three schools will actually get down on the strip and race cars for the finale winner. This is where the school that wins the reading challenge comes in handy as that school will have a guaranteed spot in the final 2 cars that race!

We wish good luck and good reading to all our students!

Ask your student for the information sent home April 12th.

Earn free tickets to the races and other fun prizes with this Race to Reading Challenge!
