First graders at Ponderosa Elementary School will have a special surprise in the form of furry new friends waiting for them when they arrive at school on Friday, October 4, 2019.
Sparklight has partnered with Ponderosa Elementary School in Meridian to sponsor, "Learning with Lucky®," a reading program designed to develop and encourage reading achievement in young students.
As a part of the program, each first grade student will receive a black or yellow stuffed Labrador reading buddy along with a book log. The students will spend time with their reading buddy each day in the classroom and work together as a team on a variety of projects designed to encourage reading. Students will then have the opportunity to earn incentives for their stuffed dog based on the number of books they read, including a dog collar, dog bed, dog tags, and more.
"We are thrilled to sponsor Learning with Lucky® at Ponderosa Elementary School," said Cheryl Goettsche, Sparklight General Manager. "We believe that this reading program will have a valuable and lasting impact on these students. Having the opportunity to be a part of this program is just one more way we can do our part to support the community where we live and work."
