Last school year only 73% of our students participated in the reading program and earned an award. In addition, only 34% earned Gold. It’s time to step it up West Lake and begin to “Stick to a Good Book.” We have set new criteria that can be reached by all students.
Mr. Simons is challenging us to have 90% of students earn an award. He has also set the goal that anyone earning the gold award can put a piece of tape on him and we can stick him to the wall. Click here to read the new criteria and access reading logs.
