Take Time to Read 2016
The 2016 Take Time to Read Program (TTTR) is being conducted by Del Mar Masonic Lodge 1350 and Corpus Christi Lodge 189 in partnership with Texas Masonic Grand Lodge and the Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas and has inviting Corpus Christi ISD and Flour Bluff ISD elementary school students to participate in the Learn to Read Program.
Take Time to Read Program is a statewide campaign designed to celebrate and encourage reading by asking elementary students to Take Time to Read every day and record the minutes they read. As an incentive, students who read daily, complete the minutes read on their Take Time to Read calendar and return them to the Masons from Del Mar Masonic Lodge 1350 and Corpus Christi Lodge 189 will receive a certificate and prize.
We are in the initial phases of the program, collecting information on who will participate so we can order materials. When the materials arrive in late January or early February 2016, they will be delivered to the school. The students will start tracking their reading time starting March 1, 2016 and conclude on March 31, 2016. Their time data will be collected the week of April 11, 2016, and forwarded to the TTTR Office at the Scottish Rite Hospital in Dallas, who will evaluate the information and ship prizes and certificates back to us to distribute to all the students who participated.
