Summit Lakes Middle School students celebrated a great year of reading May 17.
School-wide, they read 11,572 books, which added up to 3.18 million pages. Each homeroom that collectively read 50,000 pages (or more) earned a party from Price Chopper that consisted of bottled water, granola bars, ice cream bars and Danimals.
Students also played trivia games about popular novels.
Out of the school’s 53 homeroom groups, 49 groups made the goal. The SLMS literacy team worked collaboratively with Dan Scassellati, store manager and business partner of the Price Chopper at Greenwich Drive, on the project.
