COLUMBUS – For the second year in a row Annunciation Catholic School won the Scholastic Award for the most summer reading minutes logged in Mississippi.
Annunciation students read and logged 106,859 minutes. The school ranked in the top five percent of the 7,311 schools around the world participating in the annual program. The school won by a margin of only 100-150 minutes.
“We are so excited about winning the Scholastic award again,” said Terri Doumit, librarian. “We’ll be in the world record book again. Our children and their parents should be commended because not only did they read, but logged their minutes. I’m so blessed to work with families eager to read. Best job ever.”
The program challenges students to read all summer and record the number of minutes per day on a website. Doumit creates online accounts for each student before the school year ends to encourage them to participate.
