Enthusiastic Reader Nominations
The Phillipsburg Area Librarians (PAL) Association is hosting their annual Enthusiastic ReaderCelebration on April 5, 2016 at 7:00pm at the Phillipsburg Middle School. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
As a summary, you may nominate students who show an enthusiasm for reading, an enthusiasmfor showing books, read voluntarily on a regular basis, and use school and/or public libraries. It may or may not necessarily be your best or highest reader. It is an opportunity to recognize "enthusiastic readers".
Please e-mail me the names of any students from your class or the building that you would like to nominate by Monday, March 21st at 3:00pm. We will find a way to honor all the students who are nominated in the building. However, we will randomly select one winner from each building by a drawing to represent our school district at the Enthusiastic ReaderCelebration on Tuesday, April 5th.
Thank you to those who have already sent in nominations!
