Dear Parents,

READ TO RIDE, INC. is a non-profit organization designed to reward children who participate in our reading incentive program. Students in Kindergarten-3RD grade who participate in the Read to Ride program will have the chance to win a bicycle and helmet. Students in 4-5th grade will have the chance to win a $100 Gift Certificate to Dick's Sporting Goods for their participation in this program. The program is designed not only to exercise the mind through reading, but also the body through exercise. Our mission is to inspire children to create good reading habits and to be physically active.

What does this mean for your child? When your children submit their weekly reading log, they will receive one chance to be entered into the May drawing for a free bicycle and helmet for Kindergarten - 3rd grade students, and a $100 Gift Certificate to Dick's Sporting Goods for 4-5th grade students. There will be a drawing held for Kindergarten through fifth grade students in May, in which there will be one girl and one boy winner from each grade level.

Please encourage your child to read at home for the set minimum weekly minutes based on their grade level. This should be above and beyond what is expected of your child for homework at school.

Kindergarten = 30 minutes Grade 1 = 40 minutes Grade 2 = 60 minutes Grades 3 & 4 = 80 minutes (1 hour 20 min.) Grade 5 = 120 minutes (2 hours)

The program will begin on Monday, February 3rd, and will end on Thursday, April 9th. Thank you for encouraging your children to participate in the Read to Ride program.

Sincerely,

THE READ TO RIDE BOARD MEMBERS
