Congratulations, readers!

For five years, Children’s Services has participated in the Chicago Wolves Read to Succeed Program as our winter reading club.  This year between January 4 and March 2 children through grade 5 chose to read either 25 books or for 6 hours and 15 minutes (for readers of longer books) in order to qualify for a drawing for team-related prizes such as t-shirts, pennants, and book bags.  Children who joined the club in January were eligible for an end-of-month drawing for game vouchers, also supplied by the hockey team.  Thirteen winners enthusiastically received two vouchers per family.  A total of 369 children joined the club, with 145 finishing by the March 2 deadline.  Seventy-one prizes were awarded at the conclusion of the reading club.
