🐦School-wide Pigeon Reading Challenge (after July 4th, through the summer)

This challenge was also sent in report cards . Read 3-5 challenges in each section, then go to visit a local business or spot to find Pigeon and your Mystery Word to build a final sentence, then move on to your next set of challenges! Pigeon will be out in these spots after July 4th! All who participate will get a certificate and be entered into a drawing of wonderful prizes (including bikes).
