The first semester book clubs have come to an end, and an average of 50 students participated across the semester, divided onto three groups that matched lunches. Our last book club, held Thursday, December 7, offered prizes to be won during each book club lunch. Each group had an activity centered on their lunch club title, and winners took away a $10 gift card to Barnes & Noble, while consolation prizes included Hershey Bars (2 each lunch) and Smarties (left over game pieces).
- 1st Lunch played a Marie Lu's Legend bingo game, and James Miller won the gift card!
- 2nd Lunch held a twitter like contest where students were challenged to come up with a six word summary of John Green's book The Fault in Our Stars. Tyrica Brown won the gift card for her creative tweet "Never regret living your life today.
- 3rd Lunch played a Veronica Roth's Divergent bingo game, and Kayleigh Southers won the gift card!
We have begun the process of choosing our first titles for second semester. Mrs. Nelson is going to pitch the Butter by Erin Jade Lange. Here is a book trailer about the book. Ms. Hammett and Mrs. Dillard have not yet decided on a title.
