Blake High School Media Center
Where Reading is the HEART of everything!
During the 3rd Quarter, the Media Center sponsored a reading contest called Reading Bingo. Students were given the entire 9 weeks to read a minimum of 4 books, either horizonally, vertically or diagonally on the Bingo sheet based on what type of book was required in that square. The winner of a signed copy of the book, The Vow by Jessica Martinez was Cristina Caceres! Jessica Martinez is the author of a current Florida Teens Read book, Virtuosity!
