Only one (1) Book Adventure Book required per trimester!

To help insure that students are keeping up with their classwork, homework, and core novels in Language Arts, students are now only required to read one Book Adventure book per trimester. If you have already read two books this trimester, I can give you extra credit, or count your second book towards the 2nd Trimester requirement.


Remember that we only have two weeks left for Book Adventure this trimester, so finish that book! Book Adventure is worth 5% of your overall Language Arts grade for the trimester.
