Students simply aren’t handed these bikes though, they have to work for them! During the months of March, April, May, and June, students from grades 2-5 are encouraged to read 70+ hours of reading. Once they meet this requirement, their reading teachers give them a brand new book, and put their names in a raffle.
We then announce the raffle winners during their lunch waves, and the winners of the raffle get to go home with a brand new bike. It’s a great way for us to give back, encourage reading, and reward hard workers.
We can help! Simply fill out the form below to learn more about starting a Bikes for Reading Program in your own community.
