Your challenge, should you accept, is to read Wonder and take the Reading Counts quiz by 2:30 p.m. on November 8th. Pass the quiz and your name will be entered into our drawing for a chance to win a seat on the Pleasant Grove school bus headed to see Wonder when it opens on November 17th. You must read Wonder this school year in order to be eligible to participate in the challenge. If you think you have passed the quiz in a previous year, please let Mrs. Hadden know.
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a congenital facial abnormality that prevented him from going to a mainstream school – until now. He’s about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face but he has to cope with a range of reactions to his unusual appearance, as well as a lot of typical middle school drama.
Can Auggie convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances? Last date to ender the drawing is November 8th.
Battle of the Books (B.O.B) is a reading club with ten new books to read every year. In B.O.B, students are separated into groups to read the books together. Near the end of the year all the teams compete to go to the finals for B.O.B. If you have any questions or want aditional information, please see Mrs. Hadden in the library and remember, this reading club is open to anyone interested.

"In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through,
but rather how many can get through to you."
