Six Flags Read to Succeed 2012-2013

Earn free park tickets by encouraging student reading

Through the Read to Succeed program, Six Flags wants to reward you for your hard work and dedication to literacy. All eligible students and teachers have the opportunity to earn free tickets to the park by completing six hours of recreational reading. All students in grades K through 6, who attend a traditional school or homeschool, are welcome to register and participate.

Any student who completes six hours of reading outside of school will earn one admission ticket to the park for summer 2013. Please note that the Read to Succeed student tickets are only valid for students in grades K-6 on select dates during the 2013 summer season. The eligible reading materials must be non-school-related, and can include picture books, newspapers, comic books, novels, and nonfiction. Parents and students will track the hours spent reading and submit a reading log to their classroom teacher.

To participate in the program, teachers must register their school and classes online at sixflags.com/read. Teachers who submit the completed reading hours of at least one student will also receive a free admission ticket to thank them for their efforts for encouraging and supporting the students. To receive the tickets for your class, you must submit all your students’ logs online by March 1, 2013, at 5 p.m. Central Standard Time. You must also mail your students’ completed handwritten reading logs to Six Flags Read to Succeed, PO Box 113, North Haven, CT 06473.

The registration deadline for Read to Succeed is March 1, 2013. If your school participated in previous years, please remember that you must re-register for the 2012-2013 year. All traditional public and private schools, as well as home schools, are encouraged to partake in the program.

Read to Succeed was launched in 1985 to help support literacy, and has since donated millions of tickets to elementary school students and teachers. Last year alone, we had 155,000 registered schools and distributed 1.42 million free tickets. Our goal is to reward students for their hard work and give them a place to play when school is out for the summer. For teachers, it’s a way to thank them for educating and motivating students, and give them a place to relax during the summer.
