Thank You Carl Deuker!

Our most gracious "Thank YOU" to Mr. Carl Deuker for taking the time to SKYPE with LBJ boys and for always being so encouraging to our book club. We at LBJ love Carl Deuker's books and are always waiting for the next one.

The book "Swagger" by Carl Deuker inspires a Basketball Tournament !

Basketball teams were formed by the boys that read the book "Swagger". Several of the boys shared the book with an adult male in their lives and invited the adults to play the friendly basketball tournament with them. Our sincere thanks to these adults ( uncles, teachers, dads, brothers) for encouraging the boys to read.

Win the Tournament!

It is always so exciting to watch these readers turn into active basketball players. They play with their heart.... it is always so close! But then we have a winner!
