When a student has practiced their reading and are fluent with a book or chapter, a teacher may nominate a student to be a Super Reader. When the student visits Mr. Klein, they get to wear a superhero mask and cape, read to him and take a Super Selfie! The printed picture is sent home with students to commemorate the special event. Their names including Maylee Whitley pictured here with Principal John Klein is then added to the Super Reader Club poster in the lobby. Last year over 100 students joined the Super Reader Club!
