Minnesauke Elementary School earned the top prize during this year’s Emma S. Clark Library Summer Reading program. With 14 percent of the school’s student population participating in the initiative, Minnesauke earned the first “Emma Cup” in honor of its students’ reading achievements.
To be considered for the program, which was open to all elementary-aged children in the area, individuals were challenged to read at least seven books during the summer months. Minnesauke Information Specialist Taylor Kinsley and representatives from the library spoke with the school’s students about the program prior to the end of last year.
“I am very proud of all of the students who participated in this great program,” said Ms. Kinsley. “It was a nice way to encourage our community’s learners to develop a lifelong love for reading.”
In celebration of Minnesauke’s top participation rate, Brian Debus, the head of children’s services at Emma S. Clark, recently visited and presented the school with the official trophy.
