It’s that wonderful time of year again!  Holiday meals with family and friends, twinkling lights, warm blankets, cocoa, and of course…BOOKS!  ‘Tis the season to be READING and our students are doing an excellent job of it!  Next time you come to the Media Center, you will notice our wall paper of READING EAGLES!  For each chapter book or novel that a student in 2nd through 8th grade completes, they may put an eagle on the wall.  So far we have already read over 400 novels and chapter books!

It is my goal to help each student find novels that they enjoy enough to finish.  For some, this will never be a problem!  For others, it is a struggle to find the right book to enjoy through completion.  In order to encourage ALL students to try to find a story that speaks to them, I will display these purple and gold eagles with the titles of books that students have completed.  It’s rewarding to see students become excited about what they have read and how they enjoy letting others know about it.  There is a great feeling of accomplishment that comes with completing a novel!

Ask your student what book they have finished lately and remind them… Tis the season to be reading!
