Mr. Hayman talked about a new reading incentive program piloted at Collinsville Middle School to encourage students to read a million words. Students who reach the goal receive a $50 certificate for Scholastic Books for every million words read. Incentives begin for each 250,000 words to earn a “golden ticket” redeemable for Sodexo snacks in the school cafeteria. Hayman thanked the CMC Rotary for a $1,500 donation toward books and Sodexo Food Service for providing rewards.
