Max to the Mayor

Top second grade readers in the AR program at Maxwell, MAX Readers, gathered in the mayor's office to hear him speak on the importance of developing life-long reading habits.

After visiting with Mayor Knox, the children were treated to ice cream at McDonalds.

Children participating were: Caitlyn Tam, Heather Krome, Alec Powers, LaBryson Greene, Shakera Hardwick, Adrienne Gaines, John Alec Cody, Skylar Davis, Katelyn Matthews, Joshua Stevenson, William Johnson, Levi Johnson, Summer Land, Gregory Price, Aiyetora Finch and Amber Usry.

To obtain the status of MAX Reader, a child must have 100 Accelerated Reader points and also have read three books of a four point value and pass the AR test with 80 percent accuracy or higher.
