MS Reader Leaders
This year in the Library, the school wide theme was "World Readers, World Leaders" encouraging students to read in preparation to be leaders in making the world a better place. One way to show that leadership is recognizing those who took on the challenge of the 30 Book Challenge.
At the beginning of the school year, the students were introduced to the challenge to read 30 books by May 31st. However, not just any 30 books, but genre specific books. This year the students were challenged to read:
Fiction - 2 Fantasy, 2 Realistic Fiction, 2 Traditional Literature, 2 Historical Fiction, 1 SciFi, 1 Classic, 1 Mystery, 6 Free Choice
NonFiction - 2 Biography, 2 Informational, 3 Free Choice
Miscellaneous - 1 Graphic Novel, 1 Poetry, 1 Audiobook, 1 Caldecott Award winner, 1 Newbery Award winner, 1 Coretta Scott King Award winner
Total = 30 books!
I'm proud to announce that this year there were 19 students that finished the challenge:
Grade 5 - 8 students
Grade 6 - 7 students
Grade 7 - 4 students
The grade 5 students were celebrated last week at the ES Biblioawards. The 6th & 7th graders will be celebrated this week at the MS Sports Assembly and be taken to the Book & Toy Company on Wednesday. Permission slips will be handed out for the trip on Monday.
