"Digging through the dog pile"

Students who met the first reading goal in the SC Book Award Challenge had fun "digging through the dog pile" for a special treat. The second cut-off date will be Friday, December 7th. Students must read & review a total of 6 nominee books to “dig through the dog pile” again. If you didn't make the first goal, try to catch up to make the second reading goal.
