News for the week of Oct. 8 - Oct. 12

Wildcat Readers Book Club

We are currently reading The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen for our 1st Quarter selection. It is a fantasy novel that is receiving rave reviews by the students! It is book one in the Ascendance Trilogy, so be looking for book two to continue the adventure! We will meet on Friday, November 2 during grade level lunch/courtyard times to discuss the book. Students will bring their lunch to the media center and plan to stay for both their lunch and courtyard times. The book selection for the 2nd Quarter will be announced at this time.

School Fusion

Students have been learning how to use School Fusion to communicate with their teachers and to save documents or projects they are working for school. In order to use these features in School Fusion, students must log-in with their student ID as both their username and their password. Storing your school work in School Fusion is a great way to organize all of your projects in one location. Students needing assistance with saving to School Fusion, should ask Ms. Bredemeier or Mrs. Flegle in the DMS Media Center.

2012-2013 South Carolina Junior Book Award

Each year, twenty books are nominated for the South Carolina Junior Book Award. We have multiple copies of each title and we encourage students to read them. I have read all twenty books and I can honestly say they are all worth reading! Any student who reads at least three of the twenty books is eligible to vote for their favorite in late February. Students who read ALL twenty by May 1st, 2013 will win a gift card!
