We're kicking off this summer with a BINGO! We invite our students (past, present, & future!), families, supporters, tutors, and staff to all participate and stay engaged with reading over the summer months!

We encourage you to print (link below for mobile viewers or rotate phone) or screenshot this BINGO card and work on getting your BINGO throughout the summer.

Here's how it works :
1. Pick an activity from the card to join in on.
2. Take a picture and share on social media with the hashtag #SummerwithSTAIR. *If you aren't comfortable sharing, we understand! You can also email the photo.*
3. Work towards either a one line BINGO (straight or diagonal counts) for a special gift from STAIR or a full blackout BINGO for an additional gift from us!

We hope you'll go on an adventure in reading with us this summer!
