Silver Beach
Sasquatch Superbowl

Enthusiasm is high as students read and practice for our annual competition!   The list of this year's nominees is below.  Fourth and fifth graders who love to read and  like a little competition may self select, form teams and divide up the books to read.   Practice sheets are available starting in January, with culminating school and city-wide competitions in March.  This is a fairly independent activity that the kids self  manage on their own.  We will be running an optional Friday Club this year (2 four week sessions a piece) where teams can practice answering triva questions about the books and have an extra opportunity to read.  If you don't want to sign up for the club, come collect practice sheets outside the library door.  New sheets are available each Friday afternoon after clubs.  The answers to the triva questions will remain stapled to the wall outside the library door for one week at  time.
