CAMDEN COUNTY, Mo. — Through the school's Bikes for Books reading program, Dogwood Elementary gave away 26 bikes to students.
The Books For Bike program is a raffle in which any student who completes a reading log receives tickets that will be placed in a drawing for a bike. The more reading logs students turn in the more chances their name gets put into the drawing. Two boys and two girls from each grade level (Preschool-2nd) have their names drawn and receive a bike in May.
"The Dogwood teachers and students would like to say thank you to all the community members that helped us make Bikes for Books a huge success last year! Thanks to the community, Dogwood Elementary was able to encourage students to read and work to achieve a goal," said the Camdenton R-III School District in a press release.
