Summer Reading Challenge!

It's summer! Have fun, stay safe, and don't let your brain turn into mush! Do the Summer Reading Challenge! Here are the steps:

1. Choose at least FIVE books. Books that YOU like. (Tip: If you don't like a book, PUT IT DOWN. Pick another!)

2. Read the books.

3. For each book you've read, either fill out a "Book Review Form"  (conveniently located below) OR go to OPALS, look up your book, click on the title, and submit a comment.

4. When you return to school in the fall with your newly enhanced brain power, return your Book Review Forms to Ms. Chwazik in the library.

5. Collect prizes! (OK, they definitely won't be a new car or iPod, but a free pizza wouldn't hurt either.)
