Our Shelfari widgit is not working, so we thought we would help you out with #3 and #4 on your scavenger hunt...

Mrs. Dillard is reading The Condition by Jennifer Haigh and Two Girls of Gettysburg by Lisa Klein.

Mrs. Nelson is reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.

You can see other books we are reading by going to Destiny Quest in the DHS library catalog and creating an account. You will need your entire student number to create an account!

As always, anytime you need a book recommendation feel free to ask either Mrs. Nelson or Mrs. Dillard.

Did you know "Scout the Reading Dog"?

Ran across this in the online Spartanburg Herald today, and thought some of our students may be familiar with "Scout the Reading Dog."  Touching but sad story. Here's a clip.  Be sure to follow the link at the end to finish it.  If you ever had an dealings with this iconic dog, and even better have pictures, we'd love to share them here.
