Southport Middle School’s Reading Counts tree had so many outstanding favorite book ornaments that they overflowed and had to be mounted on a board to be displayed. Teacher Evelyn Watson, pictured seated, joins a few of the students who created a small booklet to show their favorite book and why they liked it. Standing, from left, are Marissa Kalina, Briana Norman, Faith Papidero, Crystal Goodwin, Andy Jean-Pierre, Amy Chen and Samantha Lewis.
