On Thursday, December 13, students who had met and exceeded their Accelerated Reader goal for the nine weeks and those who had shown the most growth in ILearn for math were recognized during their lunch period and participated in a cash drawing. In order for a student to be eligible for the drawing, they must have met their Accelerated Reader goal and maintained an 85% or better passing score on testing. Students recognized for math were the top ten students who had shown the most growth since the beginning of the school year for each grade.

Haley Davis, an 8th grade student, was awarded the top Accelerated Reader winner and received special recognition. Haley was given a certificate and a $50 cash prize. She earned 365 AR points, took 28 AR tests, and has read 2,372,418 words through AR for the second nine weeks.

Thirty students were entered into a cash drawing for AR. Of those thirty, three winners were drawn during the middle school lunch period. These three winners received a $20 cash prize – They were Garrionna Jackson, Brody Kelley, and Brock Godwin.

MCMS students in grades 6, 7, and 8 were also rewarded for their progress in math. Students remediate and accelerate in math using a program called ILearn. The top ten students from each grade who had shown the most growth since the beginning of the school year also participated in a cash drawing. Three student winners received $20 cash prizes for ILearn growth – They were D’mya Cannon, Kaylyn Bradley, and Saige Sheffield.

Paxtyn Curles, a 7th grade student, earned the top math award for grades 6, 7, and 8. Paxtyn received a math certificate and a $50 cash prize for having the largest amount of growth for math.
