EPPING —Epping Middle School is working with TD Bank, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and Barnes and Noble to encourage students to read this summer.
TD Bank and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats have teamed up to reward students who read ten books this summer. The bank will offer $10.00 to start a savings account and the Fisher Cats will award two free tickets to one of the following games: June 26, vs. the Reading Phillies; July 23, vs. the Harrisburg Senators; August 6, vs. the Bowie Baysox; or August 26, vs. the Portland Sea Dogs.
Students in grades six through eight can take the completed form (available in the school’s weekly newsletter or from the school’s Literacy Team) to any TD Bank to open the bank account and either stop by the Fisher Cats office or mail the completed certificate to: New Hampshire Fisher Cats, 1 Line Drive, Manchester, NH 03101, Attention Summer Reading Program to receive their tickets.
The Barnes and Noble Challenge, open to sixth graders, offers students the opportunity to earn a free book. By reading eight books this summer, recording the tiles and authors, and a writing a recommendation for someone else to read the book in a Reading Journal (provided), students will be allowed to choose a free book from a selected list. Readers may bring their completed journals to any Barnes and Noble between May 21, and September 3, 2013 to select a book. The Reading Journal form is also available in EMS’s weekly newsletter or from a member of the school’s Literacy Team.
