Read to Ride

Our Read to Ride Reading contest has begun.  Notes and ballots have gone home and we already have a few ballots in our ballot box.  Students can turn in their ballots whenever they have read their required minutes for their grade.  Every Monday morning we will be drawing for book prizes and on April 17th we will be drawing for 2 bikes. 

We want to thank Canadian Tire and Westcan Transport for graciously donating a bike each to give away.

Get Reading!
