LUNCHEON CELEBRATES ACCELERATED READERS
VALLEY – Twenty-five accelerated readers from Fairfax Elementary School were treated to a luncheon Monday at Bradshaw Chambers County Library to celebrate their reading achievements. The group was comprised of the top five readers in each grade level.
“It seemed like some of our students were reading constantly, even when they weren’t supposed to be,” said school librarian Erica Jenkins.
Students accumulated points throughout the year for each book they read. First through third-graders were awarded one-half point per book while fourth and fifth-graders received a full point per book due to the more comprehensive content.
Top readers in the first grade were Madalyn Garsee, Brantley Hussey, Sapatraye Huguley, Allisia Beaty and Cayson Culbertson.
Top readers in the second grade were Addyson Scott, Kaydon Northcutt, Brantley Jones, Brylee Davis and Eleanor Gregory.
Third grade readers with the highest points were Zavion Mathis, John Sanders, Kylee Brown, Adelaide Floyd and Gracyn Melton.
Students in fourth grade receiving the most points were Isaiah Gray, Tristyn Maddux, Elizabeth Clark, Colt White and Egypt Dawson.
And, the top fifth grade readers were Annabelle Letson, Addilyn Hale, Chelsea Clark, Ashton Smith and Cameron Austin Barber.
The top three teachers in this year’s Accelerated Reading Program were Robin Landreth (second grade), Cierra Terry (first grade), and Misty Letson (first grade).
