100 Books Before Graduation is a reading initiative for teens to read 100 books before they graduate from high school.

Studies have shown reading for pleasure and enjoyment has a positive impact both academically and socially. Additionally, there is an improvement in emotional health and well-being.

Reading for pleasure can:

  • Result in higher test scores
  • Improve reading achievement (strong vocabulary, greater use of grammatical structure, and improved writing style)
  • Increase social skills
  • Reduce stress
  • Help cure boredom

Who Can Participate?

Students entering 6th-12th in the Sachem Central School District
