Walton Middle School Reading Class Champions

By Cathy Mosley

Walton Middle School reading classes participated in a county wide completion; “Read to Succeed Fall Motivational Contest.” The contest took place from November 2 – December 4.  Special congratulations go to Ms. Amy Bennett’s 4th period class. This was the only class that qualified.  

To qualify, 75 percent of all the students must score 75 percent or higher. They were asked to complete eight multiple choice activities. Extra points were given to encourage students to do their very best. To begin with every time a student did an activity their class received one point. Every score of 75 percent - 87 percent earned, gave the class an extra two points and all scores 88 percent and higher generated an extra three points for the class.

In this competition, the students worked individually, but they understood that what they did on their own affected how the class would do as a whole. It took all the students working to achieve this. Again, congratulations to Ms. Bennett’s 4th period class.
