Students in the Accelerated Reading program were awarded at Tuesday’s board meeting with a certificate and a reward.
Charlotte Dean, with the Webster Parish School Board, in conjunction with the librarians of each school, presented students with their rewards.
Each winner from each school received $50 in cash. If they won their division, they got an additional $100 in cash. Those winners also received an additional surprise in the form of a $25 Amazon gift card.
“It’s my honor to get to recognize the top accelerated readers in Webster Parish,” she said. “The more difficult the book, the higher points they get for the book. There are usually five questions on each computerized test that they take, but with the more complicated books, they might have 10. But they only get points for the ones they got correct.”
North Webster schools came away with the highest percentage of readers as well. North Webster High School had the highest percentage of readers according to the number of readers they have in the high school category, with 27.25 percent.
North Webster Junior High School had the highest percent in the junior high category with 48.60 percent and North Webster Upper Elementary School took the elementary division 52.51 percent.
North Webster Upper Elementary also took the title of the highest percentage in the parish, she says.
