Read and Ride program returns for 2016-2017 school year

First and second graders at Marion-Sterling Elementary School, George Washington Carver STEM and Alfred A. Benesch Elementary School are once again invited to participate in the Read and Ride program. Students can participate in the Read and Ride program by reading books and writing reports, for each book read they are entered into a drawing for a new bicycle.

At the end of the school year four names will be drawn at each school to receive a bicycle. So remember, the more books read by each student, the more chances to win a bike! Last year, Central students read 612 books and 165 first and second graders participated.

To get started on reading your way to a new bike ask your first or second grade teacher at Marion-Sterling, George Washington Carver or Alfred A. Benesch. The Read and Ride program is hosted through a partnership between Promise Neighborhood and the Knights of Pythias.
