If possible, Dr. Smith will acknowledge these students as he visits their school.
     
    The top three readers from each 2018-2019 grade group (1-2, 3-4, 5-6) from across the district will be recognized by Dr. Smith at a School Board meeting and have their names added to the Readers Are Leaders trophy to be displayed at their school.
