Students at Sawgrass Elementary love to read. Every morning from 8:00 to 8:20 a.m. all students participate in Drop Everything And Read (DEAR).
We also give the students a chance to record the books they read to receive the Superintendent’s Honor Award in Reading Across Broward (RAB).
The mission of READING ACROSS BROWARD, The Superintendent's Reading Motivation Project, is to motivate Broward students to incorporate reading into their daily lives, foster a lifelong habit of reading and library use, and utilize technology to improve student achievement while promoting reading.
Our media specialist gives each student a Reading Record Sheet for recording titles of the books they read at the beginning of the school year. These sheets are returned to the library media specialist in April to receive recognition based on the criteria on each sheet.
