Requirements for the book award program:

Students must be in grade 3, 4, or 5.

Students may read any book that is a "good fit" for them.

Books that are read aloud to students by teachers or parents count.

Students are encouraged to read as many books from the list as possible, but must complete 5 in order to attend the year-end celebration and vote. Books must be read between June 2019 and May 2020, but only 1 book per series counts towards the 5 required.

Each time a book is completed, students must fill out a book report card and return it to the school library in order for it to count toward their total. The forms can be downloaded here.

Students may also fill in this online form.
