Blind Date with a Book - A variety of books, will be wrapped up in 'oh so secretive' paper and you won't know the 'identity' of your blind date till you get it home. Will it be fiction or non-fiction? Funny, informative, a mystery, true-crime???
Sure you might be disappointed; but then again ... you may end up having a great read with something you wouldn't have chosen for yourself. With each book is a 'Rate a Date' slip, simply say whatever you want about your date, you won't hurt our, or its, feelings.
Even if your date turns out to be a 'dud' (remember Mystery Date from back in the day?), all is not lost. With each slip you return, you will receive a small treat.
All students that participate will come back in two weeks to talk about their book.
Celebrating Dr. Seuss' Birthday - Student Council members will go to Cesar Chavez's elementary to read to a Kinder class. Dress up in Dr. Seuss' attire.
