Summer Library Program Reading Challenge
The Summer Library Program Reading Challenge trophy went to Rusch Elementary School in 2012. Which school will get the trophy this year?? The only way your school can get it is by being the school with the largest percentage of students completing the Summer Library Program. To complete the program, you must have 10 hours of reading slips turned into the library.
