Blind Date with a Book February 9 – 16th – Do you judge a book by its cover? Try a blind date with a book. These books are single and ready to mingle, and we’re only letting you judge them based on a few keywords. It’s About Trying New Things. Stop by the Media Center starting today to check out a blind date book, take it home, and unwrap it. Show it your favorite spots to read. Get to know each other. If you hit it off, introduce it to your friends! First, a few ground rules…If you take a book and open the package you are committed to reading the book and cannot return it within 24-48 hours, but all books are due within the normal two-week checkout period. After you’ve had a proper date with your book, return it directly to Mrs. Whitmarsh or Mrs. Neff and receive a Rate Your Date form. We’d love to know if your date was a success or a flop!
Cheyenne Book Madness February 28 – March 30th – Cheyenne Book Madness is NOW OPEN for voting. We would love if all teachers and students would participate. Teachers, we need you to count your students’ votes and complete the google form Mrs. Neff has sent you by Thursday each week for each round (Sweet Sixteen, Elite Eight, Final Four, & Champion). Students, even if you have not read the book you can still vote by choosing which one you would prefer to read.
