Great news! The latest tally revealed today that our grade 7 students have eclipsed the 1000 books read mark for the school year. We began keeping track in September and as of June 14, the total is 1005 books completed! This averages out to 16.5 books per student. The top readers in each class have read 63, 66, and 60 books respectivley.
I truly hope that everyone will keep up with their reading this summer. Here are some links that be helpful:

Encourage reading over the summer, and help beat "summer slide!"
