OZZIE COUGAR READING CLUB

Double up on your reading incentives!! Look for Ozzie Cougar Reading logs in your child's backpack mail. This eight-week program (1/14/18-3/10/18) is to encourage reading as a foundation for learning. Your child will log their reading time in 2 week increments and turn them in to their teachers. After completing the 8 week reading program, they will earn a free ticket to a Kane County Cougars game with their classmates for this upcoming season. Kindergarten-2nd Grade students will be completing their logs in the classroom.



SIX FLAGS® READ TO SUCCEED SIX HOUR READING CLUB

Keep reading and get a Six Flags ticket in the summer! To participate, students need to read for fun for a total of 6 hours or 360 minutes. You can read books, magazines, newspapers, eBooks or comic books. Reading for homework or a class assignment does NOT count. If you didn't get a Six Flags log before break, just log the time on a separate sheet of paper. Send the logs back to your teacher as soon as your student has read 6 hours. The program ends February 9, 2018. If you have any questions for either programs, please contact Hyeon Tai at taigrrrl@yahoo.com.
