The Tupelo School District held its reading fair last week, featuring the winners from the individual school competitions. During the event, students were judged on presentation boards they had created based on a book they had read.
Winners from the school district competition advanced to the upcoming regional reading fair to be held Feb. 22 in Oxford. They include: Thomas Street’s Nate Dillon (kindergarten), Joyner’s Jaxon Harris (first grade), Lawhon’s Dillon Ruth Dorsett (second grade), Pierce Street’s Lindsay Hopkins (third grade), Lawndale’s Chance Milner (fourth- to fifth-grade), Milam’s Eli Smart (sixth- to eighth-grade), Pierce Street’s Jennifer Cubillo (non-fiction, third- to fifth-grade) and Milam’s Daniel Fierro (non-fiction, sixth- to eighth-grade).
Joyner students Katherine Gillon, Summer Wilson and Steele Satterfield, all in Ms. Alberson’s class, placed first in the group and family K-2 division. Also winning in that division were Rankin’s Jake Weir and John Braxton Daughdrill (third- to fifth-grade) and Tupelo Middle’s Cate and Claire Burroughs (sixth- to eighth-grade).
The Lee County School District held its reading fair today. We will have photos from it in Wednesday’s Daily Journal, and I’ll post the list of winners when I get it.
