Reading Programs

We challenge TJMS students to make a goal of reading at least 25 books during the school year. Each term we celebrate with students who are "on their way" toward meeting the challenge.
Term 1 - 6 books
Term 2 - 13 books 
Term 3 - 19 books
Term 4 - 25 books.
Our Media Specialist, Ms. Ralston, will gladly work with students to find the author, genre’ or series that will encourage students to become life-long readers!

 TJMS participates in the
Maryland Black-Eyed Susan Book Award Program
sponsored by the
Maryland Association of School Librarians.

• There are incentives that students may earn if they choose to participate in this program.

3 = eligibility to vote for your favorite of the current year’s BES books (Our voting will take place in April.)
5 = choice of a large candy bar
7 = pizza party invitation (We will enjoy our pizza in May.)
10 = a gift card to a local store ($ to be determined by budget)
