East Linden Student Wins Bicycle and Helmet As Attendance Reward For Power 3 Academy
October 23, 2020 -- Congratulations to East Linden Elementary student Zoe Moore on winning a new bicycle and helmet! Zoe is one of nearly 500 students who were entered into a drawing for perfect or near-perfect attendance during the Saturday Power 3 Academy last Spring.
The Saturday sessions provided super-charged reading and math enrichment at seven schools to help students prepare for state testing. Third, fourth, and fifth-grade students who attended all the sessions - or who missed only one session - had the chance to win a new bicycle and helmet donated by our partners at Battelle for Kids, who donated a total of 14 bikes as rewards for students who attended the Saturday Power 3 Academy.
The efforts of our Academic team to get the bikes to winning students was put on hold when COVID-19 forced buildings to close last Spring and teachers focused on implementing remote learning activities. With buildings now safely reopening to staff, Zoe and other students are getting their much-deserved rewards.
