Calling all GRPS students - Read and get FREE ICE CREAM with Reading Rewards!

Posted: 07-25-2012

Looking for a way to make summer reading even more fun? Just add ice cream! The I Believe I Become Central Youth Action Committee is launching its Reading Rewards program from now until September 5th! They and the Madison Square Dairy Treat have a challenge for all Grand Rapids Public School students grades K-12: read books for free treats!

For K-8th graders, just read three books and get a free treat, 9-12 graders just read two for a treat! When you are finished reading your books fill out these short summary forms and tell us about what you read. When you've read the right amount of books, bring the completed worksheet back to Willie Patterson at the LINC offices (1167 Madison Ave NE) and leave with a coupon for a free treat! The Madison Square Dairy Treat is right next door to LINC, and right across from the library.

We have suggested reading lists for all age groups below, and you can find these books at your local library. So what are you waiting for? Have a reading adventure this summer, and top it off with a free icy sweet to cool you off in the hot summer sun!
