Sursum Libros is an incentive program that celebrates literacy and encourages students to read for pleasure beyond what they are required to complete in the classroom. This incentive program starts in the summer and continues throughout the school year. Students who read over 600 pages are eligible for awards and prizes at the end of each quarter.
Students are also encouraged to make individual reading goals each semester. Those students reaching their goals are eligible for prizes.
What is Sursum Libros?
How to participate:
Students will keep a log of books they are reading in the Google Sheet found in the Sursum Libros Google Classroom. At the end of each quarter and the end of the summer they will submit the sheet for verification. Goals will also be managed in the Google Classroom.
Individual goals will be submitted at by the end of September and middle of February and will be evaluated at the conclusion of each semester.
The last day to submit for the school year is May 1.
Prizes will be awarded after every quarter -- including a bonus summer quarter awarded during the Fall -- with special celebrations at the end of each semester. Prizes include: gift cards, ice cream parties, and others.
