The 11th annual Ellie Bilodeau Memorial Book Award occurred last week at GEMS. This yearly event fosters, celebrates, and promotes the love of reading among our students throughout the school. The awards continue on in memory of Ellie Bilodeau whose own love of reading inspired so many.
Each teacher at GEMS selected one of their students to receive the annual award. The Bilodeau family funds the gift of a book to each student a recognition of their passion, dedication, and commitment to becoming a better reader. During the celebration, each teacher spoke about the wonderful qualities of their students, sharing why a specific book was purchased just for them.
It was an exciting event filled with laughter, memories, and the joy of reading!
