Bikes for Books at Windsor school

On June 13 and 15, Windsor Elementary School celebrated reading at its ninth annual Bikes for Books awards program. Bikes and helmets were awarded to a boy and girl in grades PreK through fifth on June 13, and sixth through eighth on June 15. Bikes for Books is a reading incentive program. Every time a student reads a book, his or her name was entered into a drawing to win a new bicycle and helmet. The more books or words a student read, the more chances he or she had to win. One boy and one girl were randomly chosen from each grade level.

The following students won bikes: pre-k, Colby Lyshon and Cora Daigneault; Kindergarten, Shelby Cook and Luke Bouchard; first, Emma Gilbert and Liam Rackliff; second, Jamison Yvon and Aubrey Dubord; third, Xander Knight and Bridget Feyler; fourth, Myles Cloutier and Maya Gutierrez; fifth, MacKenzie Cushman and Christopher Ontiveros; sixth,  Shelby Gidney and Bordy Kneeland; seventh, Layla Peaslee and Anthony Regalado; and eighth, Rhya Turner and Connor Alcott.

Bikes for Books is sponsored by Dirigo Lodge #104 A.F. & A.M with a matching grant from the Maine Masonic Charitable Foundation. This program was made possible with contributions from the following businesses: Hussey’s General Store, Netco Inc., Mark’s Saw Shop, Norm’s Small Engine, Rideout’s Market & Grill, J.C. Stone Inc., Ron’s Auto Electric, Windsor Veterinary Clinic, and Elmer’s Barn. Walmart, in Augusta, contributed by providing the bikes at a discounted price.
