Superintendent Hughes sent Marcello Garrison, an eighth grader in Mrs. Amy Bennett's reading class, a medal for completing 350 Achieve3000 reading activities at 75% or higher on his first attempt.  Achieve3000 recommends a student try to reach eighty activities by the end of the school year to reflect growth, and Marcello has surpassed the goal by 270 activities.  Marcello says that he was able to do so by completing his activities in the car drop-off line before school.  True dedication to learning at Walton Middle School!
