Readers Celebrated At MS 202 1

A group of local students at Robert H. Goddard Middle School 202 in Ozone Park were recognized for their enthusiasm for reading last month. In a ceremony held on Dec. 20 in the newly reopened school library, the top student readers were honored with special certificates and prizes.

Each award recipient had read at least 10 books since the start of the school year. The top reader, sixth-grader Nuzhhat Moteleb, read an amazing 25 books.

The fall awards were presented by two teachers, Goddard literacy coach Jennifer Becker and librarian Michelle Brier. Spring reading awards will be announced in April.

“These students are leading by reading,” Ms. Brier said at the presentation. “We’re very proud of each and every one of them.”
