Our kids are hitting the books for the Read with Reed 83 Challenge!

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 65 percent of fourth graders read at or below the basic level. Our Club is teaming up with former Club kid and Pro Football Hall of Famer Andre Reed to encourage our kids to "catch" a love of reading through the Read with Reed 83 program! During the 50-day challenge, students in 1st through 8th grade are encouraged to read for at least 30 minutes a day, tracking the number of books and pages they've tackled to earn prizes from the Touchdown Treasure Chest as they pass reading milestones. Our Club will host a special reading rally this month to recognize the top MVP readers who will win a ticket to an NFL game!
