Campbellsville Elementary School students were recently honored for joining the school's Accelerated Reader club.

Accelerated Reader is a motivational program used to help students with reading skills. Students read books and answer questions about them. The student is awarded points based on how many questions they answer correctly on the quiz.

AR isn't required at CES, though the majority of second- and third-grade students are participating. Some kindergarten and first-grade students are also participating.

CES students take AR quizzes on their own time, either before or after school, or during the day if they have finished with their other academic work.

New members of the 10-point club:

Kindergartener: Destini Gholston

First-graders: Hayden Maupin, Reece Swafford, Bailee Antle and Luke Adkins

Second-graders: Brianna Mitchell, Ryder Murphy, Katie Nunn, Madison Philpott, Paige Ritchie, Brooklyn Whitlock, Chloe Bates, Alyssa Bennett, Brooklyn Boudreaux, Kendall Bright, Christian Hart and Destiny Abell

Third-graders: Serenity Mings, Chris Orberson, Mellany Parker, Tre Shipione, Ethan Cox, Aiden Eastridge and Carmen Gurley.

Students joining the 25-point club include:

Second-graders: Jaron Johnson, Alyssa Knezevic, Austin Sloan, Maylee Wilds, Alexis Wolford, Harley Couch-Allen and Cash Cowan

Third-graders: Joseph Gutierrez and Deanna Reardon.

New members of the 50-point club are:

Second-graders: Shaiden Calhoun, Connor Coots and Carson Mills

Third-graders: Jose Luna, Yoonbin Nam, Rowan Petett and Thomas Tungate.

And students joining the 100-point club are:
