Mayor Miner visits students at LeMoyne Elementary in celebration of the Mayor's Summer Reading Challenge.As part of the Mayor’s Summer Reading Challenge, SCSD students were tasked with reading as much as they could this summer. Their minutes spent reading were tallied, and Mayor Miner visited classrooms with the most minutes read at each school building to present students with a bookmark, sunglasses and a cake.
“I like reading big chapter books,” LeMoyne summer school student Debora Yangwa, now a 6th grader at Grant Middle School, said. “Reading helps my fluency and it’s so fun! Books can make you feel happy, sad, mad… they’re like friends!”
