MHS Students Win Reading Contest

Monday, June 19, 2017

Mayor Gary Christenson was thrilled to present five Malden High School students with certificates in recognition of completing the 2016-2017 MHS Reading Challenge. The contest, organized by Librarian Mary Liberge and English Teacher Brenden Maney, began on January 2nd and ran through June 2nd. Students were challenged to read as many books as possible during this timeframe. One student in each of the grades 9-12 took top honors for reading the greatest number of books. There was also one overall student winner who read more than anyone else during the entire time period. Simultaneously, the same challenge was offered to MHS teachers. Ten teachers participated and the grand prize winner was English Teacher Mr. Brian Wong. Ms. Liberge and Mr. Maney organized a pizza party for all the winners where they were presented with reading certificates and gift cards. Congratulations!
