Summary: Provide seven bicyles and safety helmets to the children that read the most over the Holiday break and four bicycles and helmets after summer break to four elementary schools in Park County, Wyoming, USA.
Working with Park County School District's Assistant Superintendant and local elementary teachers to promote childrens reading for students, grades one through five, we came up with the Rotary Club of Powell Holiday Break Reading Challenge (Decenber 22 through January 5) The challenge is to promote children to read more every day on break. The schools will provide take home fliers to the children prior to the break (see copy in documents) that lists each break day, book title and minutes read that needs to be signed off by the student and parent. They must read at least thirty minutes each day to qualify for the challenge. Two students from three elementary schools and one student from a fourth elementay school (only one class) reading the most minutes during the break will receive a bicycle and safety helmet. The challenge will start on day one, December 22 and run through Januay 5, 2024. Additionally, the superintendant asked us to provide four additional bikes for a summer break reading challenge. The matching grant will be used to purchase seven bicycles and seven safety helmets for the Holiday challenge, and four bicycles and helmets for after the summer break. The Rotary Club members will be part of the awards presentations.
