Top Shelf Reading Program: Successful Skeeters Read

Sharon and Amianne were instrumental in bringing the Successful Skeeters Read program to MHS. Watch the video to see what it's all about!

A simple concept that required lots of  background work to get going. First, Sharon and Amianne worked with the MHS administration and enlisted their wholehearted support. Then they (along with one of their assistant principals) did a presentation for teachers about why free voluntary reading is so important and how the students would benefit. Then they contacted Half-Price Books and asked for donations to stock every teacher's classroom with additional reading materials. It took the whole first six weeks to prep the project, but their planning paid off, and the result is a successful reading program that is not often seen at the high school level.

Kudos to Sharon and Amianne for a job well done!
