More than 500 North Scott School District first-grade students and their families will be treated to pizza and the students will get a stuffed dog named Scottie for successfully completing an outside-of-school reading program. The event is scheduled for Saturday at Ed White Elementary School through a program sponsored by Ascentra Credit Union and involving the Scott County Library System. Due to overwhelming response, the event location changed from the Eldridge library to the school. The program is called “Scottie Reads” and challenges each student to read or listen to 10 books outside of school time.
