What is Honors Reading?
The Honors Reading Program is a voluntary program designed to encourage reading and conversations around reading. The primary goals of the Honors Reading Program are to encourage students to read beyond what is assigned in class by:
- Allowing students choice in their personal reading
- Helping students connect with staff they may otherwise not meet
Students interested in participation may pick up a record card in the Media Center. Students will select titles off of the Honors Reading List below This list is updated annually to provide a variety of options for students. After reading a title, the student will conference with a staff member who has also read the title. Students and staff members may choose to read and conference on titles not on the list. In the spring, Seniors will be recognized for their participation in the program. Some titles on the WHS Honors Reading list are also on middle school reading lists. A student may not receive credit for the same book twice.
The recognition levels are as follows:
- Bronze Award - ten titles
- Silver Award - thirteen titles
- Gold Award - sixteen titles
