Summer has drawn to a close and, with it, this year’s summer reading program, Reading Takes You Everywhere. This year in Grove City, we had 26 kids signed up to participate.
To participate in the reading program, kids played a game that involved earning spots on a board by spending time reading and by doing other activities like attending library programs and playing outside. When they reached each spot on the board, they got to choose a prize. Everything from books to certificates for pizza to small toys were available to choose from.
Teens had a simpler version of the reading log that was all about hours spent reading over the summer.
We couldn’t have given out all of those incentives without our generous local sponsors. I’d like to thank all of the businesses and organizations that gave prizes and donations for the summer reading program:
First National Bank of Grove City
Jimmy’s Pizza, Litchfield
I hope that kids in our communities have continued to read throughout the summer, whether they participated in our summer reading program or not. Best wishes to all of the students and teachers as they begin the new school year!
