READ: a simple but powerful word is all the encouragement students at Edna Louise Spear Elementary School need to hear to inspire them to become lifelong learners.

Five students from the school were named “Star Students” by librarian Selinda Stout to promote the importance of literacy and independent reading. The school’s campaign, created by Stout, takes place several times per year and is a takeoff of the American Library Association Celebrity READ Campaign.

The students were chosen for their excellent attitude, behavior and work ethic in the library. As a reward, they have their photos displayed on the bulletin board outside of the library along with a summary of their favorite book. Stout also sends home a printed version of the poster for families to enjoy.

“It’s a pleasure to recognize these students for their motivation for the program and to embrace reading books,” said Stout.

Star students are Kieran Browne – grade 1, Katherine Snaden – grade 2, Violet Carmon – grade 3, Kristina Shterengas – grade 4 and Savannah Florio – grade 5.
