Wesley Grove wins in the Private School category

(Annapolis, MD)  The Anne Arundel County Public Library (AACPL) recently awarded the Chesapeake Cup to Central Elementary School in Edgewater.

AACPL Administrator Skip Auld presented the large silver trophy to Principal Janice Haberlein during an assembly at the school. All Central students received certificates marking their achievement and Sneaks, the much beloved Library Cat, was on-hand to personally congratulate the children.

Background information:

•  The Library awards the Chesapeake Cup annually to one public and one private school that achieve at least 25 percent participation in AACPL’s Summer Reading Club. Central Elementary was chosen at random from the list of public schools that achieved that milestone. The winning schools display the Cup throughout the 2011-2012 school year.

•  Thirty percent of Central Elementary School students registered for the Library’s Summer Reading Club in 2011, giving it one of the highest levels of participation of public schools in the County.

•  The Library also awards framed certificates of achievement to each public and private school that achieves at least 25 percent participation in the Club. The other public schools so recognized are Benfield, Bodkin, Broadneck, Cape St. Claire, Crofton, Crofton Meadows, Crofton Woods, Deale, Folger McKinsey, Four Seasons, Hillsmere, Jacobsville, Mayo, Monarch Academy Charter, Nantucket, Piney Orchard, Severna Park, Shipley’s Choice and West Annapolis and Windsor Farm Elementary Schools.

•  The private schools that reached 25 percent participation are Aleph Bet Jewish Day School, Martin Barr Seventh Day Adventist, Naval Academy Primary School, Wesley Grove and Woods Memorial Child Development Center.

•  The school with the most improved participation in the 2011 Club is Jacobsville Elementary School. Registration of Jacobsville students was up 34 percent over last year.

•  This is the 15th year that the Library has awarded the Chesapeake Cups.

•  The theme for this year’s summer program “One World Many Stories!” Nearly 14,200 kids in preschool through grade 12 registered for the 2011 Summer Reading Club, which ran from June 20 through July 30 at all 15 library branches in the County.

•  Wesley Grove is the private school recipient of the Chesapeake Cup for 2011.
