Summer Reading Celebration

Great job summer readers!

Congrats summer readers!
Congratulations to the 172 JYJ students that kept track of their summer reading!  As I've said many times before, I absolutely love to read and I love that so many students are interested in reading.  It is not uncommon for me to let students choose books off the book bucks cart even if they don't have enough "Book Bucks" to buy a book because I have a hard time denying someone a book that wants to read!  Reading is so empowering and I am so proud of the students that took time during their extended break to keep track of their reading.  So to recognize these students, we did it the JYJ way with a celebration!!!  The students danced to music and were entered into a drawing for gift cards to Barnes & Noble (of course to get more books).  What a wonderful time we had.  If only everyone knew what we know about the wonders and rewards of reading.  Here are  more pictures from the celebration.
