Monarch Award  

Below is the list for the 2017-2018 school year.  Students in grades K-3 may participate in this program. Look for some information going home in September. Those who read, or have read to them, 15 or more Monarch books will vote for their favorites at the end of February and choose a free book.  At the awards assembly in June, participants will receive a special certificate.
