Want a free ticket to Six Flags?

Then read! Six hours by Valentine’s Day will get you there.

Students will have a special log to record their reading time (for extra copies, see Ms. Mitchell in the media center). Any reading material counts (magazine, comic book, website), but it must be extra reading, not required for school or homework. The deadline is February 14, 2013. Tickets will be mailed to the school in the spring. For more information, see the FAQ or e-mail Ms. Mitchell (smitchell at jackson.k12.ga.us).
