LUNCHTIME READERS-VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We still need a few volunteers!! Lunchtime Readers starts January 21st and takes place during recess Tuesday’s through Friday’s (this is only a six week program). Volunteers don’t need to commit for the entire time. Even if you can only be there some days, or some weeks, only 2-3 days total, we could still use your help. The program is for kids in 3rd grade thru 5th grade, but parents of a younger child (K-2) can also volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions, please reach out to Meghann VanderBaan ( firstname.lastname@example.org )and/or Suzanne Krause (email@example.com ).
DEADLINE EXTENDED – SIX FLAGS – READ TO SUCCEED: 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). Using the code sent home by the teacher, complete the online eReading log, by Saturday, February 1st, 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). Please contact your student’s teacher if you need the code as each classroom has its own.
