Blake High School Media Center

Where Reading is the Heart of Everything!


LITERACY - Week - Month - Grading Period!

January 22nd will start the third quarter and the beginning of Blake's Literacy celebration #bhsbuzzonbooks! In the Media Center you can play RUZZLE, a word game. Come in and check out the bulletin board and see how many words you can make each week. The only catch is the words must "touch." Ruzzle will be weekly starting every Wednesday and finishing on Tuesday of the next week. The winner will be announced each Wednesday. The READING BINGO contest will also start on the 22nd and continue until March 21st. For the Real Readers of Blake High School, this is your opportunity to shine! You will have all quarter to read a minimum of four books to go horizontal, vertical or diagonal for this contest. There will also be a BUMPER STICKER contest. Create an original bumper sticker about Blake and Reading (for example Blake HS Brakes for Books!) The template can be picked up in the Media Center starting January 22nd. All completed bumper stickers need to be turned in by January 31st. The Bumper Stickers that are returned will be displayed and judged. Prizes will be awarded for all activities.

The week of January 27th - 31st there will be all sorts of crazy stuff going on.

Monday- Reading Rocks so Wear Funny Socks. Wear the funniest socks you can find!

Tuesday- Hats off to Books. Yes, hats, FUNNY hat, will be allowed, BUT if stopped and questioned you must be able to discuss the book you are currently reading!

Wednesday- Wear Read and Be Well Read. Pull out that red shirt or sweater.

Thursday- Be a Reading Rock Star. Beatles, Nirvana or Jay Z, pick your favorite T & wear it!

Friday- Score with Books- Sports team shirt. Can be any sport but FSU football is the fav!

Wednesday, January 27th and Friday, January 31st the Media Center will have a Book Trivia Contest based on the “If you liked the movie . . . . You will LOVE the book” display in the Media Center. The questions will be announced during homeroom referring to the book/movie display.. Students will have an opportunity to visit the Media Center during the day to turn in the trivia answers.

Students, accept the invite to join #bhsbuzzonbooks on EDSBY so you can enter the contests. By accepting the invite, you will get your name in the raffle for a prize. Every time you post a picture of you with a book and funny socks, or you in your sports T-shirt and a book, your name will be entered in the raffle again. The Grand Prize will be a life size poster of YOU as Blake’s very own Rock Star Reader!
