Every year, we take a night to celebrate our members for their progress and achievement in reading during our afterschool program, as well as excelling in homework all year long.
More than 200 members and their families attended last week's Learning Center & Accelerated Reading Award Dinner, themed "The Magical World of Books - Opening the Doors to Your Imagination!" We enjoyed a night of awards, complete with special performances from Club members and an organ player, and a buffet dinner.
Our Learning Center staff recognized 25 Club members for the completion and accuracy of their homework, as well as overall effort (pictured above). They will also be treated to a celebration at Golden Corral!
Our Accelerated Reading staff and District Attorney Sandra Doorley recognized several categories of readers, including:
- The top three Readers of the Year (congrats Aiden, Khalida, and Xavier!)
- The Top Twelve Readers
- Two Platinum Readers who scored the highest on their comprehension tests
- The Fabulous Five most improved readers
- The Star Readers who read more than 100 books each
- 242 members who achieved their reading goals in one or more quarters
Over the past school year, 231 Club members read 15,764 books!
It was a wonderful night where Boys & Girls Clubs of Rochester families, program donors, and volunteers came together to honor education and continue to empower youth to be successful.
Thank you again to everyone who made the night a success!
