Lone Star Reading Challenge
To get students excited about the Guerrilla Games Competition in February, we have begun the Lone Star Reading Challenge. Once you pass 5 AR tests your name is added to the state of Texas; 10 AR tests gets you the Lone Star sticker, 15 AR tests is a free Sonic drink of your choice, and 20 AR test is a $20 Barnes and Noble gift card.
Come by the library to pick your Lone Star bookmark to keep track of what you have read.
In the month of October we saw over 1,000 students in the library and checked out 1,900 books. Ten classes visited the library, 11 co-teach lessons were taught, and we held our Fall Book Fair.
