Book of the Week

Each week, the Book of the Week will be displayed in the library. A question from the book will be posted on the monitors above the office and in the lunchroom. Students wishing to answer the question can do so by writing their answer down and placing it in the box beside the display. A name will be chosen each week to receive "Book Fair Bonus Bucks" which can be used at the Book Fair in November.
This week the book is "First Day Jitters" by Julie Danneberg.
