Flaming Hot Readers

Things are really heating up at Berta Weathersbee Elementary School! Students recently began participating in a flaming hot reading challenge. For every three picture books or one chapter book they read and write a summary on, they earn a bag of individual size hot potato chips. They can earn up to two bags per week. Each time they earn an individual bag, they are entered into a weekly drawing to win a large bag of hot chips. Participants in the incentive also get their picture on the Berta Wall of Flame.
