Steele Elementary School Students Read to Achieve with the Long Island Nets

The Long Island Nets recently brought their Read to Achieve Program to Steele Elementary School. The program strives to instill the importance of reading and literacy within elementary school children and is open to all classrooms and community centers. Students must read three books in one month during the school year and track them on their provided bookmark. Once completed, students will receive one complimentary ticket to a select Long Island Nets home game. Participants also have access to additional discounted tickets and the opportunity to take a free throw on the court after the game. The Long Island Nets will honor top classroom readers and top overall readers during the 2019-2020 basketball season. Steele students kicked off their Reading Challenge with a Read to Achieve Assembly featuring a visit from mascot Dale the Eagle.
