Sunshine State Young Readers Association (SSYRA) and FTR (Florida Teen Reads)
Each year our great FAME association chooses books for each of our grade levels to focus on and at the end of the year if the students read 3 or more of these books, they get to vote on their favorite book. These books are also tied to our Battle of the Books competition that is held each year at the end of the year. The students study these books so that they compete with the other schools in our county to see who comprehended the books the best. In the past we have had some great books that the students have really enjoyed and these books have led to a love of reading for all of our students.
