Eldersburg starts Read-a-Saurus reading program

January 17, 1995

Eldersburg Elementary School's Read-a-Saurus Celebration '95 started Jan. 3 with a goal of having the entire school community read 25,000 books by the time school ends in June.

Participants will receive credit for each book, or every 50 pages in a chapter book, read. Students will receive a commemorative certificate for every 10 books read.

For every 100 books read by a grade level, the group will receive one new book for its class library. When the goal of 25,000 books is met, the entire school will enjoy an ice cream sundae party.

Information: 795-1700.
