Dorman students diligently read books on the 2007-2008 SCYABA list and voted for their favorite book. When the votes came in on February 14, 2008 Dorman students chose Twilight by Stephanie Meyer as their favorite YA book. Participants of the reading program will celebrate at a breakfast during National Library Week. Dorman students look forward to start reading next year’s list.

WOW! That’s what I have to say about the day Sharon Draper spent at Dorman High School. Some students said Feb. 28, 2008 was the best day of their lives since they were able to meet the author of some of their favorite books. Mrs. Draper captivated the students in two large group assemblies reading excerpts from her books and explaining how she became a writer. Students and faculty were invited into the media center during 3rd block for a book signing. About 100 students were invited to participate in a small group discussion for an exciting question and answer forum during 4th block. Mrs. Draper left a message with the Dorman students to read as much as possible. The day was fast paced, fun, and filled with book discussion.
