Sunshine State Book Club

The Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) Program is a statewide reading motivational program for students in grades 3 through 5. The purpose of the SSYRA Program is to encourage students to read independently for pleasure and to read books that are on, above, and below their reading level in order to improve their reading fluency. Sunshine State books are selected for their wide appeal, literary value, varied genres, curriculum connections, and/or multicultural representation.

We encourage all students in grades 3-5 to push themselves to read as many Sunshine State books as they can. Throughout the year we celebrate those students who continue to meet their goals with fun events and special treats like popcorn and ice cream parties.
