Students at Memorial Drive Elementary celebrated reading in an exciting way on Friday, August 19th. An Accelerated Reader (AR) Kickoff Celebration was held to get students energized and motivated to read. To begin, a special slideshow presentation featuring photos of last year’s Mystery Field Trip to Rebounderz in Jacksonville was shown. Following the presentation, Mrs. Trina Dill introduced students to the goals set up for each grade level and rewards that can be earned through reading. Students were selected to participate in a reading relay game. “The AR Kickoff Celebration is a great way to get our students excited about reading. They always enjoy this event.” stated Mrs. Dill.
