You can choose to register each child individually. To do this, you will click on the link under the header for the age of your child/ren.

3) You will need to put your information in first, then it will ask for your child/ren's information next. 

4) Once your family or all your children have a profile, you can select the "Pre-Register for Summer Breakout".

5) After you click this, you can choose a learning track to complete via Beanstack OR you can stop in the library and pick up a paper game board. We are using the learning tracks and paper game boards in lieu of our usual reading records. After you register at home, stop in the library for a calendar of events, a free book (per registrant), a few coupons, and a form for a free Tin Caps ticket (per registrant).

6) When you complete a learning track or game board, stop in the library to receive a surprise activity pack. Your family/child/ren may complete up to 3 game boards/learning tracks during the 6 week program. At the end of the program, as long as your child/family has earned the Summer BreakOUT badge on Beanstack, &/or completed 1 game board, you will be invited to our end of summer party (TBD) and receive a form for a free Mad Ants ticket (per finisher), and a few other goodies!
