Summer reading t-shirts and movie tickets are here! If your child participated in our reading programs, they will receive either their t-shirt or tickets (or both!) during their regularly scheduled library class this week. Movie ticket vouchers are for Valley Cinema and will expire December 31, 2013. Congratulations to our 115 participants in our traditional reading challenge and to the 20 readers who read books which later became movies, including many classics, and earned a movie ticket.
After two fantastic author visits within the past week, we now turn our attention to two upcoming visits-one on-campus and one virtual. Stephan Pastis, author and illustrator of Timmy Failure: mistakes were made, will visit with 4th and 5th grade on October 21st. 4th and 5th graders will also be involved in a virtual author visit with Thanhha Lai on October 24th. She is the author of the amazing book Inside Out and Back Again which was awarded the 2011 National Book Award for Young People's Literature and one of the two Newbery Honors.
