MPSD Curriculum recognizes students who participated in Summer Reading Challenge

The Curriculum Department issued a Summer Reading Challenge to all of our students in the Meridian Public School District. Their challenge was to read books from the summer reading list or any book they enjoyed reading. They were also to take an Accelerated Reader test on their book throughout the summer. We looked at the list of students who read and took tests in Accelerated Reader to see who accepted the challenge and they were recognized on Friday, September 23, 2022.
