What Book Are You Currently Reading??

At BBI, our goal is to simply inspire a LOVE for reading. We encourage student CHOICE when it comes to choosing library books. It is important for students to choose books they are interested in reading. We truly want them to "get lost" in a good book. Using the link below, you can search the library catalog to see what's available.

Collaborating About Books

Internet Safety Tips

Planning to spend time on a chrome book this year for research projects? We need to make sure we value research ethics while on the internet. As you begin exploring the internet, it is extremely important to be a good digital citizen. Please watch the video below to learn about internet safety.

40 Book Challenge and Beyond!!

This year, BBIS students are being challenged to read at least 40 books from a variety of different genres. As they read a book, they will keep track of their thinking and record the genre. Once they have finished their 40 books, they will turn in the required tracking documents to their ELA teacher. Once it has been approved, students will be invited to the 40 Book Challenge Party at the end of the school year. Students will have until April 29, 2022 to turn in their 40 book challenge documents. Ready, Set, GO!!!!
