Greenville Elementary School students have earned awards for their achievements in the Accelerated Reader Program this school year.
The top reader in the school was fifth grader Rydia Kennedy with 667 points.
Aldo receiving trophies were class leaders Elijah Sears in second grade; James Matthews in third grade, and Katy Littlefield in fourth grade.
GES Principal Eric Swingler said the reading program is an important part of the curriculum throughout the school district. He said it fosters a love of reading for the students, presents a challenge, and teaches students about goal-setting. Those who achieve their goals are recognized quarterly. He thanked the school’s AR committee and librarians for their efforts and encouraged students to continue reading over their summer break.
