St. Bernard Middle School rolls out Sustained Silent Reading initiative

Alexis LeBoeuf and Alyza Alfonso are enjoying some SSR time in the library.

St. Bernard Middle is delighted to roll out its Sustained Silent Reading, or SSR, Program this school year. Students and staff have the opportunity to read a choice book for 10 minutes EVERY day. Students will keep a reading log and take Accelerated Reader Quizzes to earn a host of rewards and prizes. SBM believes that you get good at what you do every day; good readers are better writers and thinkers; and of course, reading can be so much fun!

Jerzie Douglas and Grace Teal are choosing their books in preparation for SSR.

Bre’yonta Angelety is engaged in SSR during her homeroom period.
