Students who are interested in planning library activities and selecting books are encouraged to join the CHS Library Teen Advisory group. Meetings will occur during first and second lunch on late start days for creating agenda items. Members from both groups will decide on the best ways for moving forward at an after school meeting the last Tuesday of the month.

Fifth wave was selected at the CHS Yellowjacket 2016 Book of the Year. However, since it was the first book in the series, students answered a survey question on whether the library should only order this title and/or proceeding ones for the Book of the Month selection. Fifth wave and Infinite sea became the January & February selections through this process.

Since CHS Yellowjacket Literate Club had limited after school attendance, this will continue virtually through the Book of the Month club.

Participants will sign and follow a contract with the following guidelines:

1. Library & textbook clearance from elementary school-present

2. Participation on Haiku/Power Learning Discussion Thread

3. Three Week book check out
