Eagle Reader Program

The Eagle Reader program is a school wide reading incentive program that challenges students to meet reading goals each month. Our program’s goal is to encourage at home reading. Students will receive prizes each month for achieving their goals. Reading minutes can include reading alone, reading with a sibling, listening to a parent or other family member read, reading using “Raz Kids” or other reading programs, and audio books. The point is to get the kids reading or listening to the written word. Research shows that kids who read….SUCCEED!


There will also be special awards throughout the year for students who continually meet their goals, including an ice cream party and a pizza party.

We will be having school-wide competitions between classrooms, so turning in your timesheet and completing your monthly minutes goal will be very important for you and your class!

Due Dates:

Timesheets for a given month are due the first school day of the following month (Ex: October Timesheets will be due November 1st). Reminders will be given to students. Late timesheets will still count for the yearly total, but students may not receive the monthly prize if their minutes are not turned in on time. Additionally, late timesheets will NOT count towards class competitions.


PTA is really excited about the reading program this year and hope you are too! Get ready to SOAR LIKE AN EAGLE towards your reading goals.
