2017 Reading Guide

The Dixie Power Kite Festival is designed to promote reading as a habit and encourage students to engage in family-oriented physical activity. Qualifying students earn a high-quality kite, book or $10 voucher for their reading efforts. Also, contributions are made to the Washington County School Foundation for distribution to schools most actively involved in the kite festival based on attendance.
