Library Challenge

  • read 25 books
  • earned 407 points
  • read 1,647,803 words
Let the challenge begin!

Library Mystery Poster

The mystery poster in the library is looking good but in order to fill it in by the end of the school year, each student needs to read (4) books a trimester.  As a school, we fell a little short last trimester.  Remember, three of the books each trimester are your Reading Counts books.  That leaves one more book for fun where size and lexile does not matter.  So, let’s work a little harder the second trimester because four books is doable if everyone helps.  If you scored a 70% or better on a Reading Counts quiz last week, see Mrs. Hadden in the library before the end of the week.  Have fun and keep reading everyone!
