Ride to Read Summer Challenge

This summer, Pond Cove Elementary School is partnering with the Maine Department of Education to make summer reading even more fun for our students. Students and families are encouraged to participate in the Read to Ride Summer Reading Challenge

Summer is the perfect time to explore the world through books — learn about topics of interest, escape to real and imaginary places and let your mind explore new worlds.  To make summer reading even more fun, take the Challenge! Read at least 500 minutes this summer to qualify for a chance to win one of 48 bikes and helmets generously donated by the Maine Freemasons

Follow these simple steps:

Read (or for young learners, be read to) at least 500 minutes this summer — that’s just 20 minutes a day for 25 days.

Record your reading on the Read to Ride Passport. 

Ask your parent/guardian to document your reading by signing your passport. 

Return your passport to your school principal by September 4, 2020. (Take a picture of the sheet and email it.) 

All completed passports will be entered into a school level drawing. Two students from each participating school (one boy and one girl) will have their names entered in the Maine Department of Education’s drawing to be held on September 25, 2020. Winners will be notified on October 2, 2020.

The entire Pond Cove staff wishes you a wonderful, safe summer. Let’s get reading!!
