FULTON – Several Fairgrieve Elementary School first graders received accolades after being named the top Accelerated Readers for their grade level.
The recognition came during a recent Morning Express program in the school gymnasium where library media specialist Barb Senecal commended all seven honorees for doubling the first grade AR goal of 10 points.
She said the students read at least 40 AR books each throughout the 2015-16 school year for a total of at least 20 points, an amazing feat for the youngsters.
For their efforts, they were awarded a goodie bag with a stuffed bear, book, bookmark, suckers, pencil, notepad and a coupon good for a free Applebee’s kids’ meal.
