100 Books Before Graduation
WHAT IS IT?
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
