MAYVILLE - Students in the elementary grades at Chautauqua Lake Central School were recognized for their dedication to reading for pleasure.
Each student selected books to read independently at home, then returned to school to take a computer-based quiz that assessed reading comprehension, earning points for correct answers in an Accelerated Reader competition coordinated by library assistant Melissa Froah. All the second graders at Chautauqua Lake were honored for having read more than any other grade level, earning over one-third of the total points accumulated throughout the school.
At each grade level, the teachers whose class took top honors were: Kim McMahon, kindergarten; Sarah Morrison, first grade; Andrea Benedett, second grade; Karin Adams, third grade; Rose Stark, fourth grade; Shari Tennies, fifth grade; and Mary Peck, sixth grade.

Some Chautauqua Lake students are now engaged in the "Race To Read" program, coordinated by teacher Rennae Majka. By reading for at least 15 minutes a day, five days a week, and tracking their reading over a four-week period, they can earn tickets to attend a race at Lake Erie Speedway.
