Grades 3-6: Books and Bikes

This year at NCS all 3-6th grade students are challenged to participate in “Bikes for Books,” a program that helps to foster a love for reading. The Alna-Anchor Masonic Lodge has pledged to fund eight bikes at our school!  That amounts to one girls/one boys bicycle per participating grade, complete with helmet.

Ninety Masonic Lodges will present nearly 1,000 bikes to children participating in reading programs at Maine schools and public libraries.  Students are encouraged to read, and each time they complete an age appropriate book, their name will be added to a classroom drawing.   The more they read, the better their chances to receive a bike!

NCS is pleased and thankful for this opportunity to expand students’ reading skills.  If you, too, would like to support this incentive program, a financial donation may be be made to the Alna-Anchor Masonic Lodge (bicycle) or to the Beacon Chapter of the Order of Eastern Star (helmet), c/o Barry Knott, P O Box 328, Damariscotta, ME 04543.   We also would like to thank Stanley Waltz for his interest in bringing the program to our school.
