Six Flags Read to Succeed – 6th Grade Only :)

Students received a reading before Christmas Break to read 6 hours outside of school by Feb. 25th. I have extended the date to Friday, Feb. 27th to give them a couple more days to complete the assignment. If they complete this and turn it in to us on time, they will receive a free Six Flags ticket in May.

The LUNCH class that turns in the most will win a pizza and movie party. If there is a tie, the class that turns them in first will be the winner. PLEASE encourage your students to participate!!!

Each student received a copy the sheet below, but these links will provide extra copies just in case. 🙂
