Black-Eyed Susan Reading Program

Our students participate in the Black-Eyed Susan Book Award Reading Program by listening to the nominated books, which are read aloud by Mrs. Boyd at various times during media visits.  The Black-Eyed Susan Award is named for the State Flower of Maryland and has been given in several categories every year since 1992. The purpose of this award is to promote literacy and lifelong reading habits by encouraging student to read quality, contemporary literature. The picture book nominees are listed below. When students read 8 of the titles, they can vote for their favorite. These votes are tallied statewide to determine the winner. Authors, illustrators, and publishers recognize this award as an honor bestowed by Maryland students.
