Batesville Middle School Library Media Center

Young Hoosier Book Award Program

Your child is invited to participate in the Young Hoosier Book Award program at Batesville Middle School.
There are several ways a student can become involved in the YHBA program, and this includes getting a start
on the reading this summer!

Opportunities:
1. Students reading and passing an Accelerated Reader quiz for a minimum of five (5) books from the middle
    school YHBA list by Monday, April 13, 2020, will be eligible to:
                 -participate in the YHBA Voting Celebration in April 2020 (date to be determined)

2. Students reading and passing an Accelerated Reader quiz for a minimum of fifteen (15) books from the
     middle school YHBA list by April 13, 2020, will be eligible to:
                -participate in the YHBA Voting Celebration in late April 2020
                -receive a trophy at the end-of-the-year BMS awards program

3. Summer Program – Students reading and passing an Accelerated Reader quiz for a minimum of fifteen (15)
    books from the middle school YHBA list by Monday, September 9, 2019 will be eligible to:
               -participate in the YHBA Voting Celebration in late April 2020
               -receive a trophy at the end-of the-year BMS awards program
               -be eligible for a group activity in late September or October

Guidelines:
-Students must read from the Young Hoosier Book Award middle school list. Titles are listed on the back.
-All books must be read from the beginning to the end by the student.
-When the student is finished with a book, a test must be taken at the BMS media center using the
Accelerated Reader program. A 60% or better must be scored in order for the book to count toward the
required number of books.
-Quizzes must be taken on or after June 12, 2019. If a student has already taken an AR test for a book on
this year’s list, the test results will be deleted, and the student may retake the test to qualify for the
YHBA program. If retaking an AR test, rereading or skimming the previously read book is recommended
before retaking the AR test.
-The BMS media center will be open this summer on Wednesdays so that students can come in and select
books and take quizzes. The dates are listed below.
                     *June 12 (6:00 – 7:00 p.m.); June 19 (9:00 – 10:00 a.m.); June 26 (6:00 – 7:00 p.m.)
                     *July 10 (6:00 – 7:00 p.m.); July 17 (9:00 – 10:00 a.m.); July 31 (6:00 – 7:00 p.m.)
-Copies of the books are also available at the Batesville Memorial Public Library.
-Questions about the program should be directed to Mrs. Lisa Barnett (lbarnett@batesville.k12.in.us)

 

Thank you in advance for your support in encouraging BMS students to be life-long readers!
