SIX FLAGS – READ TO SUCCEED is back! Think summer, sun and splashing at Great America next summer! Students need to read 6 hours (homework assignments not included) and keep a log of reading titles and minutes read to earn a FREE Six Flags Great America one day pass for the 2020 summer season (these can also be used to purchase a Season Pass for a discount). NEW THIS YEAR – parents/guardians will need to register their student(s) for the program on-line using a Teacher Specific Code, which will be sent home soon, if you haven’t received it already. Then, complete the online eReading log, by Tuesday, January 21st, 2020 (there are no paper forms to send back this year). Personalized day passes will be issued and set home in May. Additionally, if students read more than 6 hours they may be eligible for Extra Rewards this year. Once these are determined by Six Flags, you will be able to see them in the Rewards area of the online site. You must attend Ivy Hill to be part of our program. For questions, contact Nikki Wolverton (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Louann Benbow (email@example.com).
