School-wide reading program culminates in rubber duck race
HENDERSON COUNTY, N.C. (WLOS) —
Local students took part in a rubber duck race to celebrate their reading accomplishments.
Students at Atkinson Elementary School have been participating in a school-wide reading incentive for the past five months.
Each student received a Book Bingo card at the beginning of each month. If they read a certain number of genres, they were awarded a prize and a duck in the race.
If their duck won Thursday's race, they were awarded another prize.
If a student "blacked-out" their whole Bingo card for all five months, they were treated to a movie at Flat Rock Cinemas.
