Several students at Ibraham Elementary School had the opportunity of a lifetime last week when they got the chance to ride bikes through the hallway. For their willingness to participate in the Read to Ride Book Challenge, students received brand new bikes.

From Feb. 1 to May 1, students participating in the reading challenge were required to keep track of the number of minutes they spent reading each day to be eligible for the drawing to win one of five different bikes, one for each grade level. To be entered in the drawing for the bike, students grades K-2 were required to log 100 minutes of reading and grades 3-5 were required to log 300 minutes. 

Just before the bell rang for dismissal on Thursday, May 20, the “Prize Patrol,” which was made up of several teachers and faculty members, delivered the bikes to students while they were in class. Students were able to watch the Prize Patrol travel through the halls via a live stream that was broadcast to each classroom. 

Assistant Principal Dr. Dara Hedgecock led the Prize Patrol and after winners were announced, she allowed the students to take their new bike for a spin. Winners were Marceline Privado-Zarate, Macros Melendez-Gutierrez, Audrey Wade, Mia Jorge-Ramirez, Sara Moncallo-Navas, and Anastacia Lenczewski. Kayla Isbell’s first-grade class also received a certificate for having the most participants in the challenge. Every student who logged their reading minutes and participated also received a bag filled with candy and other items. 

As the 2020-21 school year draws to a close, several teachers and administrators said it felt good to do something nice for the students. Shannon Spencer, the Instructional Technology Facilitator (ITF) at Ibraham, said she was excited just to be a part of the Prize Patrol.

“I think this is a great way to celebrate students, given the year that we’ve had so far, It’s nice to be able to do something nice for the students.”
