HUES reading awards
Special to the Chickasaw Journal
HOUSTON – On May 1, Tom Byrne, representing the P.A.C.E. Foundation, visited Houston Upper Elementary School.
He awarded cash prizes to thirty-three deserving students in grades 3 through 5 for their achievement in the Accelerated Reading Program for the second semester. The AR Program is a voluntary program that encourages students to read outside the classroom. Students read books of their choice and take quizzes based on the books they have read. Possible points are determined by the length of the book and its level of reading difficulty.
Students who received reading awards include:
Whitney Walters, Maddie King, Alexis Ellison, Kalena Williams, Jessica Torres, Holly Petit, Kaleb Griffin, Abby Chism, Autumn Britt, James Criddle, Penelope Harrell, Ashanti Cunningham, and Marquashia McGregory
Keyae Morgan, Jacob Mchann, Jaden Johns, Jacob Gillespie, Grace Tate, Jay Landon Cruse, Madison Latham, Lauren Moore, Cade Ellison, and Lindzee Jo Mixon
Emma Brassfield, Abby Kate Boyer, Emily Pettit, Haley Makamson, Kiley Smith, Gabriel Womack, Christopher Washington, Addison Crump, Lindsey Reeves, and Destiny Fields
Those student earning fifty or more points were treated to a special celebration, which included playing kickball and Washers outside, and playing board games, eating pizza and other treats in the library. At the request of the students, the celebration concluded with Mrs. Sue Shirley reading scary stories. Everyone had a great time and the staff wishes to challenge others to read more next school year as well as to thank Mr. Byrne and the P.A.C.E. Foundation for sponsoring the AR Program.
