The Kids’ Summer Reading Program will wrap up on Saturday, August 3–but there’s still time to bring in your reading records to get your Care for a Critter votes, entries for prizes, and for Super Readers, your yard sign!
So far, Kent Kids have read a combined total of 3,165 hours–wow! Lots of kids have earned their “Home of a Super Reader” yard sign, but there are still plenty left for kids who complete 20 hours of reading.
In other news, the Komodo Dragon has pulled ahead of the early leader, the Burrowing Owl, in the Care For a Critter Contest. Team Owl, keep reading and earning votes! Longcoy Elementary School has sent us the most summer readers with 83 readers signed up–great job Longcoy!
Mark your calendars for Friday August 2 to come to one of two Akron Zoomobile programs, at 1:00 pm and at 2:00 pm. There’s no registration, but show up no more than 1/2 hour before each program to get your boarding pass–space will be limited.
