School’s Summer Reading Competition Winners Announced

When school ends in June, the reading competition begins for lower school students at Worcester Preparatory School (WPS).  Each summer, students in grades one through six are invited to compete in a Summer Reading Competition. This year, 145 students accepted the challenge and kept track of the number of books and pages they read during their two-month school break. Totals for summer 2015 included 245,557 pages and 2,759 books read.

Top readers for overall books were third grader Ryan Mann with 127 books; first grader Gray Bunting with 126 books; and second grader Olivia Conaway with 108 books. Reading the most pages were third grader Mann with 20,294 pages; fifth grader Parker Tingle with 11,205 pages; and third grader Sydney Tingle of Fenwick with 6,632 pages.
