Sacred Heart Catholic School was awarded the Summer Reading Readers’ Cup Award from the Rowan Public Library this week. Jennifer Nicholas, from the Rowan Public Library, presented the trophy to the school during their morning prayer and assembly program. Sacred Heart’s approximately 120 elementary students in Grades first through fifth read over 750 hours during the 2016 Summer Reading Program at the library. This is only the second year the Rowan Public Library has given out the Readers’ Cup to a local school for success in the Summer Reading Program.

“Sacred Heart really pushes summer academic enrichment,” said Principal Frank Cardelle. “We like to call it our ‘Summer Smart’ programming. At SHCS, we host several summer camps involving creative writing, lego robotics, rocketry, nature exploration and even cooking classes. We are always supportive of our community’s ‘Summer Smart’ activities and love RPL’s incentive for reading.”

Librarian Lynn Frank could not be more proud. “As a mother of four boys, I truly understand the dynamics of helping children to love to read,” said Frank. “That is why we have many reading incentive programs at SHCS. In a world of ever-growing technology, Sacred Heart prides itself on keeping our students focused on the foundational skill that will see them through their entire lives: reading.”
