Our School Wide Reading Revolution is a huge success! Every Thursday the "Reading Revolution Lunch Club" meets to discuss the latest novel. Our club spent November and December reading and discussing "The Book Thief". We then loaded up a couple of school busses and visited our local movie theatre to watch the movie. Once back at school, we discussed the movie along with the differences between the novel and the screen play.
We are now reading the book, "Divergent"! Please join us every Thursday.
Our "Celebrity" faculty/staff "Caught Reading" posters decorate our main hallway leading to the Media Center. Some of our posters are found here on our website in our picture slide show shown at the top of our website.
Parents, please encourage and or read with your child. Be a part of our exciting program!
