St. James Episcopal Day School third through fifth graders have been busy reading the Louisiana Young Reader’s Choice Books for 2019-2020.  The book list includes 15 outstanding books that are age appropriate for our young readers.  The students participate by reading at least three of these books.  In January students vote for a favorite from the list.
     School wide voting happened last month, when the students had a the opportunity to cast their ballot using electronic voting machines from the Office of the Secretary of State.
     The top three books chosen included third place winner The Princess and The Peas by Rachel Himes; second place winner Wedgie and Gizmo by Suzanne Selfors; and the top choice in first place was Wishtree by Katherine Applegate.
     Congratulations to all of our students for participating, including the students pictured who went above and beyond the three book reading requirement!
