Braum's Book Buddy Reading Program

Hello Peachies,

Well the info came in too late for the back to school fair, but we can now sign up for the Braum's Book Buddy Reading Incentive Program. Here's a short blurb about it. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me via email.

The Braum's Book Buddy Reading Incentive Program is for elementary aged children in the 1st - 5th grades only. (Sorry kindergarteners. You will need to wait till next year.) There are 6 prize coupons. Each coupon requires the student read 6 books. A sheet of 36 stickers comes with the booklet. The teacher must fill out and sign the coupons as they are given to the students. Students must be present to redeem prizes and they must be be done inside, not in the drive thru. Only one coupon may be redeemed at a time. The program runs from October when the coupons come in until June, 2012.

Now, in order to sign up please send me the following by the end of August: Parents' names, Child's name and grade, address and phone # or contact info.
Since I didn't take up a mail fee, I will try to pass these out as I see people at our support group events. Normally they don't come in until the last half of October and I will send out an email when they do.

Happy Reading and Happy Ice Cream eating!
Pamela White
