Reach for the Stars at Hilo Inter
The current Reach for the Stars reading incentive program at Hilo Intermediate School challenges kids to read approximately 6 extracurricular books per quarter. Kids who meet the goal go to "Incentive Day" where there is a party for them. Those that don't, go to Study Hall to wait it out. The RFTS Committee does not view this as a problem. Keep in mind that the reading program is completely voluntary for the kids. So, essentially, kids who don't want to or can't meet the goals are being punished for not choosing to read for fun. Please sign the petition if you thnk this practice is unacceptable.
