The district would like to congratulate the students of Sylvan Avenue Elementary School for being declared winners of the Bayport-Blue Point Public Library’s Summer Reading Program.

This past June, the library media specialists at Academy Street, Blue Point and Sylvan Avenue elementary schools collaborated with the public library and shared this exciting contest with all of their students. It was determined that the school with the most participants and books read would win the coveted trophy and have it placed on display in their school’s library for the upcoming school year. 

Sylvan Avenue’s top readers were Skylar Johnson with 114 books, Liliana Galano with 74 books, Michelle Rosenzweig with 57 books and Riley DeSimone with 49 books. The program was a resounding success as the grand total of 7,074 books surpassed last summer’s total of 4,655.
