Baker USD has kicked off its Reading Incentive Program with a spectacular dance performance by the superintendent and other staff members. The Reading Incentive Program's purpose is to teach the students in grades Pre-K-12 the importance of reading. There was a districtwide assembly this morning (10/08/13) in which staff members, high school students, and administrators got a chance to share with the younger students why they like to read and the impact reading has had in their lives. As part of the program, every student in grades Pre-K through 12 will create a contract with his or her teacher promising to read a set number of books by next spring. The students who fulfill their contract successfully with get the opportunity to participate in a celebration ceremony, which will include food, awards, medals, and, of course, books.
Good Lucks Baker Braves! You can do it!
