Congratulations also go out this week to:

  • Grady Middle School student Apurba Roy, who was named the fourth “Reader Leader” by myON for logging the most time spent reading on that website during a particular month. Roy read for an astonishing 219 hours and 34 minutes in myON in May. Get her story here.
  • Sharpstown High School, which was named the beneficiary of the Houston Dynamo’s “Every Save Counts” program.
