The Great Gumball Challenge is a Fall Reading Program inspired by the families of our community who want to continue the momentum of our summer reading program. Here’s how it works: Grab a reading log and stickers; set your own reading goals; when you’ve read a book, put a gumball sticker on that line; finish your log and win a free book of your choice! The “Chews A Good Book” Gumball Challenge will continue throughout the fall with activities, games, trivia questions and contests. Ask Miss Nancy for more information.
