The Aldine Noon Optimist is sponsoring a reading competition for local Aldine ISD elementary schools with one boy and one girl winner at each campus. The announcement was done during a luncheon last Wedneday, November 13, 2013.

Students earn an entry for every book they read and a drawing is held at the end of the reading competition. The more books they read, the more entries they will have for the drawing.

There are 9 elementary schools that receive a boy’s and a girl’s bike for the drawing: Mendel, Orange Grove, Oleson, Francis, Odom, Calvert, Stephens, Johnson and Worsham elementary.

Bicycles were purchased with a grant from East Aldine Management and donation from Prosperity Bank.
