This month is Harry Potter month in the library and we are celebrating the opening of the new movie (November 18) in Potterhead style (with a school-wide reading contest)!
For each book you read this month (November), fill out one of the short reading reports (available from your English teacher or here in the library). The grade that has read the most books by November 30 will win a movie party in the Kiva!
These can NOT be books you've already read and must be novels (no children's books or very short books).
Accio books! (And good luck!)
For our November Book Club we will be discussing
The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley.
This book is historical fiction and at various points will leave you feeling sad, angry, and then ultimately hopeful, empowered, and with a deeper understanding that family love conquers all--and sometimes family doesn't mean those you're related to.
This book is amazing!
Book Club will be November 15 at 3:00 in the Library. See you there!
We had a Rivalry Book Fair Contest at Albion Middle School during Parent/Teacher Conferences. Each time a student purchased a book, they put red chips or blue chips in their respective team's jar. The U of U of fans purchased the greatest number of books. Therefore Mrs. Olsen, Ms. Rees, and Mr. Jameson (all BYU Fans) had to dress up in Utah Red and sing the "Utah Man" fight song in front of the entire student body this past week. Was it painful? YES! Did they survive? Barely. = ) Thanks to all who made our school fundraiser a success.
Our Book Club Book for October is
The Nest by Kenneth Oppel.
This is an eerie story that teaches a compelling lesson about disability, fears, dreams, and ultimately, what it means to be a family.
Read the book before our meeting on October 18 at 3:00 in the Library. Hope to see you there!
