All SES second graders of the 2016-17 class are encouraged by their peers and teachers to beat last year’s record of 8,800 total books read.

Readers have the opportunity to earn a place into The 100 Club in three levels of achievement:

  • 50 books –  Bronze
  • 75 books – Silver
  • 100 books or more – Gold

Medals and prizes are awarded throughout the school year. Club members also enjoy an end-of-year party at the school to share their success.

Let the reading begin!
