64 Students. 5 Days. 27,978 Pages. And One Well-Deserved Award For Brown Middle School

Brown Middle School Challenge to Educational Citizenship Award For Their SARAH Read-a-thon Project; Polson Honored For Its Contribution As Well

Brown Middle School received the Challenge to Educational Citizenship Award for their SARAH read-a-thon project.

Madison Public Schools Assistant Superintendent Anita Rutlin and Reading Language Arts Specialist Naomi Rosenstein accompanied students Mark and John Lisi to the ceremony at the state capitol  earlier this week to receive the award from the Commissioner of Education, George Coleman.

Sixty four students participated in the Read-a-thon and raised $3,547.31 by reading 27,978 pages over the course of 5 days in February. Mark and John were the top fundraisers for the read-a-thon. Most of the other 11 statewide winners were high schools so it was an exceptional achievement for Brown.

Brown was also a semi-finalist for it's "No Name Calling Week" project as was Polson for their two projects, "Lending A Helping Hand" and "Spreading the Word to End the Use of the R-Word."
