This past Friday, Allendale School rewarded any student who had accumulated at least 50 Accelerated Reading points during the first semester with a movie and popcorn party. There were 57 students in 1st through 8th grade to achieve this goal and 18 of those had more than 100 points. In fact, the top three totaled the following amount of points: JD Bowser (254), Braden Weir (248), and Mark Vaupel (193). Those students accumulating over 100 points were put into a drawing for a chance to win $20. We had two winners in the elementary grades and two winners in the junior high. The elementary winners were: Isabella Monroy and Michael Smith. The junior high winners were: Katie Jackson and Holly Lofton. The following is the list of students who earned at least 50 AR points in the first semester:
1st Grade: Ryland Houchin, Jackson Cusick, Jaxon Morris.
2nd Grade: Conner McGinnis, Tiffany Smith Terry, Joel Schneider, Emma Ford, Stetson Potts.
