We had a blast kicking off our inaugural Cool Readers Reading Challenge Saturday, Apr. 27th! This is the 1st year for the Cool Readers program, challenging second graders from Buchanan, Wilson, and Jackson Elementary Schools to read 10 books in one month.
Fifty-one second graders completed the challenge and were invited along with their family to a pizza party at the Davenport Public Library Fairmount Branch. In recognition for their reading achievement, each student was rewarded with a special certificate and stuffed animal penguin, and even got their picture taken with Ascentra’s very own Jumpin’ George!
Thank you to our partners at the Davenport Public Libraries, the Davenport School District, and the Ascentra staff who helped make it a special day for our little readers.
