South Carolina Junior Book Award Field Trip Participants
Three books – just three books were all that students at Seneca Middle School needed to read in order to fly high and get some Big Air – a trip to the Big Air Trampoline Park in Greenville that is. Approximately 120 students recently enjoyed the much-anticipated field trip sponsored by the school’s media center after participating in the South Carolina Junior Book Award Contest throughout the school year. To qualify, students had to read and submit online responses for at least three of the twenty nominated 2018-2019 titles. Seneca Middle School Media Specialist Sydney Jones said of the reading program and field trip, “Each year we strive to get our students reading and although this trip is used to motivate them, we are confident that it also sparks their interests and fosters a genuine desire to continue reading for pleasure. We are so thankful for all of our parent volunteers and a generous donor who made this trip possible for these hardworking students.”
