Summer Reading

Summer is here, and it’s time to relax by the pool, at the beach, or at home!  Don’t forget to read while you are enjoying all of your free time!

We are requesting that our students read at least 1,500 minutes this summer.  We’d like for you to record your minutes and the books that you read!

I’ve included all of the directions below (including your login), so you can start now!

Have a fabulous summer, and I’ll see you at our brand new media center at our new school!  Happy Reading!!

Contest!!

We are packing up to move to the new school!  So, we need all of our books back!!

Therefore, we are having a contest to see which homerooms can get all of their books back the fastest!

Here’s how it works……

Any homerooms who have all their books in (teachers too) by Monday, April 30th,  will be entered in a contest to win a class breakfast!  If your homeroom wins,  Mrs. F will also do your teacher’s lunch duty!!

So, let’s get those books in ASAP!!!

Top Four!

Come to the media center to enter our version of the Final Four! 

The books below are our top four books checked out this year. 

Pick which one you think is the MOST CHECKED OUT BOOK, and you could win a prize!

Under Construction!

We are working hard to complete our genrifying project. 

So, please excuse our mess while we are working to finish genrifying.  

Once we are finished, you are going to LOVE it!! 

It will be easier for you to find books in your favorite genres! 

Come check out what we have completed so far!
