Summer Reading Program

“Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.”
Joseph Addison
This summer, Sewell School students were encouraged to complete a variety of activities to promote reading and maintain the literacy skills they learned during the school year.  Students who participated went above and beyond to complete grade level appropriate tasks.  Each student earned a bookmark, award, and pencil for their efforts.  Way to go!
