Frequently Asked Questions

What is the SERG Star Readers Challenge?

  1. The challenge was developed in an effort to promote reading among students in grades K-12 in order to enhance their learning experience during the fall semester. The program is open to all children ages 0-18, whether they attend public school, private school or are homeschooled.
  2. For ages 0-5, the children can earn rewards by having parents or guardians read to them and log the amount of time read.
  3. To begin the program, students will fill out a reading log, to be approved by a parent or guardian, the reading logs will then be turned in for various rewards. Each reading level requires the student and parent/guardian to log 5 hours of reading time.
  4. Each reading level that is achieved offers a different prize.
  5. The logs are to be completed sequentially.

How does a student take part in the Star Reader Challenge?

  1. Students can pick up the Star Level 1 reading log from their school or from any of SERG’s restaurants or download and print the form from our website. When they have logged 5 hours of reading time, they will be eligible to turn in the Star 1 Reading Log at either Coastal Provisions Company location (Shelter cove or Coligny). When turned in, the representative at Coastal Provisions will give the child their star readers t-shirt and a “stamp book” with the star 1 stamped. They will also be given the next star reading log- Star Reading Log 2.
  2. Each Log then goes on to be redeemed at different locations highlighted below until Log 5.
  3. The student will keep the stamp book to track rewards as they are issued.
  4. At each Star Level, the location where the child is directed will receive their prize and a stamp. Additionally, they will receive their next log.
