All students that have turned in at least one complete reading log and attending the last activity day party will receive a new paperback chapter book or new beginning reader book along with a SRP certificate. We will be giving out new paperbacks from the Magic Tree House Series, A to Z Mysteries Series, and the Junie B Jones Series. The beginning reader books will be Scooby-Doo.
