Camden Maiona, a third grader at Saint Catherine of Siena School in Norwood, was the top reader in Massachusetts in a statewide summer reading program supported by libraries across the state and sponsored by Mass Literacy and Readocity. Named, Summer Smart Reading Champions, the contest required students to create a digital reading log of minutes spent in summer reading.
Camden won the award by logging in over 11,170 minutes (186 hours) of reading as part of the challenge. According to her mother, Lorna Maiona, she reads constantly and prefers books two or three levels above her grade level. “She really is a bookworm,” said Mrs. Maiona. Congratulations to Camden for not just meeting the summer reading challenge, but exceeding it in a spectacular way!
