CEDAR CITY--East Elementary is grateful for the generous support of Lin’s Market, which is donating donuts to students who complete their first 500 minutes of the school’s new reading program. The program, created by the East Elementary PTA, offers motivation in the form of certificates and prizes as students complete reading minutes throughout the year.

“We’re impressed by local businesses who are so willing to give back to our community,” said Kaprena Heaton, East Elementary PTA president. “Supporting our children in an area as vital as reading is a worthy cause. Lin’s offer of an incentive to get the kids started in good reading habits is just what we needed.”

The East Elementary reading program challenges kids to read for 5,500 minutes by the end of the school year. Parents sign off on bookmarks sent home with students, which are then turned in to the teachers. Certificates are awarded in school assemblies for every 500 minutes read, and prizes are included at some intervals; including water bottles and backpacks. Students who complete 5,500 minutes receive a special t-shirt.
