Winners of the Golden Tiger awards, for reading the most words, came to the Chestertown council meeting Tuesday, Feb. 17, where Councilwoman Linda Kuiper presented their awards.
Second-grader Mariah DeAndrade read 32,119 words. Third-grader Aaron Saunders read 821,421 words. Fourth-grader Braiden Bakeoven read 510,805, and fifth-grader Alystair McKenzie read 635,570. The word counts were determined by the number of words in books the students were tested on.
Kuiper said students at the school had read more than 5 million words all told. The fifth grade won the school reading challenge with the most overall words read, she said.
Accompanying the students were teachers Carole Manley and Amy Crowding.
