Tyson Elementary Reading Carnival
Thursday, May 18
Tyson Elementary School
Students receive a ticket every day for completing their reading homework. That is: reading 20 minutes a day and getting a parent to sign their reading homework slip. At the Carnival, students check in at the door and receive a baggie full of tickets for every day they completed their reading homework. Only students with these tickets can participate. Parents cannot purchase tickets at the event. The Reading Carnival is amazing! It is a good incentive for the kids to do their reading homework each night.
