Students Recognized by the American Library Association

Six Edna Louise Spear Elementary School students in the Port Jefferson School District have been named Star Students in the American Library Association’s yearlong Read Campaign.

The students, chosen as November Star Students, are Megan Becherer, kindergarten; Peyton Barrett, first grade; Michael Cormier, second grade; Talin Bajaj, third grade; Rose Meliker-Hammond, fourth grade; and Michelle Wu, fifth grade.

As a reward for being named a Star Student, each of these Port Jefferson scholars will have their photo displayed on the bulletin board outside the school’s library, along with a summary of their favorite book.
