  • Six Flags Read to Succeed ProgramSix Flags Read to Succeed Program

        This year, our class will be participating in an exciting program that encourages students in grades K through 6 to read for fun. Read to Succeed is a free program sponsored by Six Flags Theme Parks.
        Every student who completes SIX (6) hours of recreational reading before FEBRUARY 28, 2018 is eligible for a FREE admission ticket to the Six Flags Over Georgia Theme Park!

        Students will bring home a parent letter for you to sign and a reading log for participation in the program.

    Here’s what you need to know:
    • Review the reading log. Your child should use this reading log to record what and how long he/she reads. Please initial each entry and then sign the reading log to verify that the 6 hours of reading has been completed. Your child must complete 6 hours, or 360 minutes, of recreational reading.
    • Your child can read books, magazines, newspapers, or comic books (digital or hard copy). Reading for homework or a class assignment does NOT count.
    • Students can read silently, aloud, or with an adult—you can read to your child, or your child can read to you.
    Late entries will NOT be accepted.

        You can read more information about this exciting program on the handouts that will be sent in Friday Folders.
