The Merrick Avenue library recently hosted a brief reception celebrating the participants in the 2014 Super Summer Readers Program.
To be considered a Super Summer Reader, students were challenged in the spring to go above and beyond the school's regular summer reading program: they had to read at least five books over the summer, one of which had to be on the school's official summer reading list.
In addition, Super Summer Readers had to keep a log of the books they read and comment on them, explaining what they liked (or disliked) about each one.
Library Media Specialist Rachel Mathieu-Leo was joined by English Department Chair Cheryl Fontana, Assistant Principal John Gibilaro, and Principal Taryn Johnson at the reception earlier this month.
Students were called down to the library for a snack and a brief, yet lively discussion on the books they had read. Each participant was presented with a certificate and a small congratulatory token of their hard work - a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble.
Congratulations to the 2014 MAMS Super Summer Readers: Sean Berg, Alexa Cohen, Sarah Multer, Brianna Ottofaro, Juliana Tirino, Allison Trabold, and Elizabeth Tuzzolo.
