Last month, Ms. Greco nominated Jose Negron for the Scholastic All-Star Student Award. The Scholastic All-Star Awards recognize the outstanding achievements of students in READ 180 and System 44 classrooms across the country who have overcome reading challenges to succeed in school. Out of 400 national nominations, Jose won the System 44 All-Star Student Award. Jose will be awarded $1200, recognized on the Scholastic website, and will be acknowledged at the 2012 Read 180/System 44 Summer Institute Convention in New Orleans. Ms. Greco will also be awarded $1000 worth of Scholastic teaching materials for all Equality Read 180 and System 44 scholars. We are so proud of Jose!
