On October 10th, Westside students kicked off the Ken Garff Reading Program with a fun run at lunch. For every lap students completed, they earned a drawing ticket. At the end of the day, these tickets were drawn for prizes. Many classes also participated in the kick off festivities by having a read-a-thon in their classrooms.
The Ken Garff Reading Program rewards students for reading. Students will have the opportunity to win prizes several times throughout the school year based on how many days they have read. The more days read, the more chances for winning they will have.
