In collaboration with the Bell County Extension Office, the Lone Jack School Center hosted the FRED program — Families Read Every Day — for kindergarten- through fourth-grade students. During February, students logged minutes read at home with their parents, grandparents, etc.

Students participating in the program included Levi Gibbons (second grade), Aiden Saylor (second grade), Alivia Reed (second grade), Tanner McDonald (first grade), Cooper Epley (first grade) and Scarlett McKendrick (kindergarten).

All students participating in the program were awarded certificates for their participation. The student logging the most minutes read was rewarded with a new bicycle. The winner of the bicycle was Alivia Reed, reading a total of 17 hours, 1023 minutes.

The school’s goal is for more students to become involved in the program for next year.
