Guinness Goats Go Far!

Our 5th grade Guinness Goats went far in the Regional Battles on Saturday, March 5th at Westview High School.  We placed #2 in the Sweet Sixteen rankings and made it to the Quarter Finals losing in a close battle by only 10 points.  Julian, Sarah, Julia, Arun and Logan (spokesperson) showed great team spirit, kindness to the other teams and an honest competitive love for books.  So proud of them!

A Morning With Tui T Sutherland

Several 3rd, 4th and 5th graders gathered together in the Library to hear from the creator of the Wings of Fire Series, Tui T Sutherland.  She graciously answered lots and lots of questions about the series, her writing process and her very cute dog, Sunshine.  Thanks to Powell's for bring her to us!

Jory John's Ideas About Ideas

1st and 2nd graders were treated to the gentle humor and great energy of author Jory John as he shared from his books, Goodnight Already, I Love You Already, the Terrible Two and a super top-secret sneak peek of a new book coming out in August.  He also had some superb suggestions about "Idea Time" and where you can find ideas (Anywhere!).  Thanks to Green Bean Books for connecting us with him and for supporting his visit.
