“Read To Succeed” Spring Contest

Walton Middle School is pleased to announce Mrs. Amy Bennett’s sixth period class as the winner of WCSD’s “Read To Succeed” Spring Contest. Mrs. Bennett’s class earned an astonishing 63 points on average, per student, which was 38 points higher than the classroom scoring second place in the competition.  This class also won the fall competition with 111 points on average, per student.

To qualify for the event, students were required to complete six possible activities.  Each time a student successfully completed an activity, his or her class earned one point.  To encourage students to do their very best, extra bonus points were awarded for earning high scores on the activity.  Therefore, activity scores of 75 percent of higher earned two points, and scores of 88 percent or higher earned three points.  

WMS is extremely proud of Mrs. Bennett and her winning class – they really did “Read To Succeed.”
