LMS honors Summer Reading participants
Published 9:59 pm Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Twenty-six Landrum Middle School (LMS) students celebrated their summer reading accomplishments Friday, Aug. 30 with ice cream sundaes at lunch and a popcorn and coke party. The event also included a preview showing of new books from the book fair.
Students were provided with information in May regarding this year’s incentive for the summer. Students kept track of their summer reading on a Cardinal Credit Keeper form, which was available at school, on the website and at the Landrum Public Library. Suggested books were also posted.
In order to qualify for the incentive, students were required to obtain 15 total credits from reading and Study Island. Five of the required credits had to come from reading. The other 15 could come from a combination of reading and/or Study Island, a resource that District One Schools uses to offer students an opportunity to build skills in math, reading, science and social studies.
The Study Island program awards students with blue ribbons when they pass each assignment. For the summer incentive, one blue ribbon equaled one credit.
As a final surprise, the students received one voucher worth $8 to purchase a book at the school’s book fair this week. Students also have the opportunity to do a book talk for the school’s news show to air in the next few weeks.
It was a grand day at Landrum Middle School celebrating students’ accomplishments.
Congratulations to the following students who worked hard this summer:
Bailey Butler, Chris Easler, Brandi Hutchins, Crystal Parris, Ruby Mullet, Blake Dill, Faith Barnwell, Samantha Burrell, Andrew Cash, Michael Clark, Gabe Fowler, Grant Hilsman, Emily Hodge, Megan Hormell, Ayden Laing, Hannah Meredith, Ben Painter, Ethan Robinson, Chloe Smith, Rachel Smith, Drake Taber, Kinslee Wright, Madison Mace, Olivia Tate, Tiffany Musselman and Colby Green.
