    SUNSHINE STATE YOUNG READERS' AWARD BOOKS (SSYRA)

    The Sunshine State Young Readers' Award program presents a choice of fifteen books each year recommended by students and chosen by a committee of Florida librarians. They are chosen for their quality and appeal, and represent some of the best in children's literature today. Students in grades 6 through 8 are encouraged to read at least three of the books, so they can vote for their favorite. Every year, the author of the book with the most statewide votes is presented with the Sunshine State Young Readers' Award at the annual FAME conference.

    LWMS had 18 students read all 15 of the SSYRA books this year and each received a $15.00 gift cart to Wal Mart!

    Way to go, Reading Eagles!

Accelerated Reader Program

Accelerated Reader Program

The Accelerated Reader (AR) Program encourages students to read for pleasure. Students take a STAR test at the beginning of the school year which determines their recreational reading range. Students visit the media center to choose an Accelerated Reader book within their recreational reading range. After reading the book, students take an AR quiz to test their comprehension. Points are awarded for passing the AR quiz.


Most of the books in the LWMS Media Center are Accelerated Reader books. AR quizzes are available for both fiction and non-fiction books on a variety of topics.

To view a complete list of which books have AR quizzes, go to AR BookFinder Program. If you would like to see which books we have in our school library, go to Destiny, our online card catalog, and click on our school.
