The Dennis Township PTA is sponsoring the Be a Phanatic about Reading program for the school district during the 2014-2015 school year. For each child that successfully completes the program, the PTA will purchase a Phillies game ticket to the baseball game honoring all children that completed the program in the Spring 2015. The student will be required to have an adult chaperone at the game and provide their own transportation to Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

The program is divided into two levels: one for children in grades K through 3 and the other for grades 4 through 8. Children will be asked to spend a minimum of 15 minutes a day reading whatever book they select. Younger children will be given Phanatic coloring sheets to color in once they have attained their goal while older children will be asked to record the book they read and write a few sentences on their favorite part of the book.

Enrollment in the program is optional and not part of an academic grade. In order to enroll, each student needs to have parental/custodian permission. To enroll, complete the permission slip at the bottom and return to the homeroom teacher by Tuesday, October 21st the necessary paperwork and specific guidelines to the email listed on the permission slip. If you have
any questions, contact the PTA at
