On Thursday, June 28th, Emily was our first participant in our children’s summer reading program to turn in her completed reading log. She received a ticket to the “Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey Circus” and a certificate of completion. Since she read more than her required number of books, she also received a pencil, a canvas book bag, and a coupon for a free kid’s meal at Chili’s.

All completed reading logs should be turned in by July 15th.
