In September, Notre Dame Academy students in Carmel Valley set out to earn gold medals in a voluntary, school-wide, reading initiative called Gold Medal Reading. Exceeding all expectations, 15 students read over 14,000 pages during the school year attaining the highest level of recognition. The students are: Linxi Barker (2nd grade), Ariel Betts (7th), Sophia Dubbelde (5th), Jennifer Kerwin (5th) Jessica Kuhn (7th), Sarah Kuhn (5th), Nicholas Mariotti (5th), Sarah Mariotti (4th), Sofia McKay (2nd), Amir Sadeghi (3rd), Gabriela Sanchez (5th), Lily Tanghe (4th), Yvonne Tremoulet (3rd), Alianna Torres (6th), and Kyle Wesseln (7th).
Gold Medal Reading is an on-line reading log program where students enter the number of books or pages they read and collect prizes along the way. This year, K-8 students at NDA logged over 10,000 books and 87 students earned gold medals.
