The Geneva Grammar School celebrated reading completed over the summer break with the annual Summer Reading Awards Assembly. Geneva School Librarian Lisa Patti and Grammar School Headmaster Jessica Gombert recognized 266 students with awards—231 students earned gold, 26 students received silver and nine students earned bronze medals.
These students (and teachers who participated in the summer reading challenge) read a combined total of 425,200 pages over the summer. In addition to their gold medal, 27 students in fifth grade received a Hershey’s chocolate bar for going “Above and Beyond” by reading over 1,700 pages.
Three students especially went the extra mile in their summer reading. Fourth-grader Katie Chapa read 10,555 pages, first-grader Luke Taylor read 16,788 pages and second-grade student Branch Mangum read a total of 17,367 pages over the summer.
“Our summer and our awards assembly looked a little different this year, however, I am so proud of the perseverance our students showed in completing their summer reading challenge,” Mrs. Patti said.
