Jack Yates Millionaire Summer Readers
 
On September 28, Jack Yates High School recognized ten Millionaire Summer Readers.  The ten students were treated to a luncheon where they received incentive bags filled with four YA paperbacks, Millionaire window decals, book skins, daily reading organizers, ear buds, and coupons and gift certificates to Fiesta Texas and Jack-In-the-Box.  Entertainment was provided by boy band and Yates students Big Rush. The menu consisted of fried chicken, fries, rolls, and frappe.  

 

            Students are also invited to a special treat on October 12.  They will have a free dress day and lunch with Principal Marla McNeal-Sheppard, which will be sponsored by the library and the PTO.  During this luncheon, the students will include a special presentation as a kick-off for National Teen Read Week (Oct. 14-19).
