Race into Reading Reward Day

What a great day we had at VIT Elementary on last Thursday! We recognized all those students who met their reading goals during our Race into Reading Incentive Program. So many kids met their goals. About 100 were recognized in front of their classmates. After the recognition ceremony, all the students were treated to drinks, popcorn, and the movie Cars 2. After the movie and lunch, the kids were treated with a real race car. A local racer named Steve Lance Jr. brought is race car down from Cuba as a backdrop for reward pictures for those who met their goals. The car was so popular that all the kids had their picture taken next-to or in it! A special thanks to Steve for donating his time to our students. I have included a picture of his car at the bottom of this post. Ashley Strode was our randomly drawn winner of the Grand prize. She won an authentic race-used tire from Dale Jr's 88 car. Look for pictures in the next Argus. A special thanks to Mrs. Shaw, Ms. Becker, Mrs. Hampton, Mrs. Hunt, and Mr. Churchill for helping with the special day.
