Balmer is participating in an exciting program that encourages children in grades K through 6 to read for fun. Read to Succeed is a free program from Six Flags® and Discovery Education. Every student who completes six hours of recreational reading before Tuesday, February 16, 2018 is eligible for a free admission ticket valid at Six Flags theme park in Agawam, MA. Students will develop a greater appreciation for books when they see that you think reading is important too. You’re sure to have fun as you investigate the world of reading together!
Here’s what you need to know:
Only students in grades K through 6 are eligible to take part in the Reading Club.
Review the attached reading log. Your child should use this sheet to record what and how long he/she reads.
Your child must complete six hours, or 360 minutes, of recreational reading. Please initial each entry and then sign the reading log to verify that the six hours of reading has been completed.
Your child can read books, magazines, newspapers, or comic books. What doesn’t count is any reading your child must do for homework or a class assignment. Kids can read silently, aloud, or with an adult—you can read to your child, or your child can read to you.
Remind your child to return the reading log to his/her teacher by February 16, 2018. Late entries will not be accepted.
About the Tickets:
Tickets will be distributed to students by your teacher/coordinator in June, 2018. The ticket is valid for admission on select dates during the 2018 season. Dates will be included on the tickets. Tickets are valid for students in grades K-6 only and are not valid for anyone over the age of 13. No exceptions. Each ticket is valid for one free admission only. Tickets are not for resale and are nontransferable. They cannot be replaced if lost, stolen or damaged.
Look for the Family Discount Offer!
Each Read to Succeed ticket will come with a discounted admission ticket offer for families so that they can celebrate their child’s accomplishment. This discount information will be included along with the student ticket and can be accessed.
We hope that you and your child enjoy this free program and spend time reading together.
Please encourage your child to complete six hours of recreational reading and return the reading log to his/her teacher by Tuesday, February 16, 2018.
