KIDS READ 10,000 BOOKS FOR HOLIDAY READING CONTEST

Collins Elementary School students read a total of 10,068 books for the Holiday Reading Challenge that began September 12th and ended December 3rd. The idea was created by BSO School Resource Deputy Victor Thompson and ESE Specialist Renee Coore-Barrett about seven years ago, with each year setting a new record. The top reader, Joshua Buchanan, 9, read more than 119 books and successfully passed 119 tests on the material. The second place reader was 9-year-old Juwan Marshall. On Friday, December 7th, the school hosted an awards presentation to the top readers. Both Buchanan and Marshall received computers and toys. Dozens of other prizes were delivered by Santa Claus to the top readers, courtesy of WalMart Supercenter in Pompano Beach.
