Welcome Back!

I cannot believe it is that time of year again. The 8th graders are all grown up, the 7th graders are excited to know what is going on, and we have a new batch of 6th graders. I love when they come in so excited to get books. As of today, I have seen all of the 7th graders, and I am just starting to see the 8th graders. The 6th graders are coming in next week full of excitement in getting Hunger Games, Twilight, and many others. I LOVE this time of year!

I also love hearing about their summers and what they read! I read quiet a bit this summer, but a lot of was rereading. It was also all about the ending of series. On the left side you will see my Goodreads account that is just for my students. You can see there what I have been reading.

I have also issued a challenge to my students this year. I want them to set a goal of how many books to read. This is not a contest. It is more a personal goal that you want to try and achieve. I am excited by the numbers I see on here!

Lots of things are happening in the library also. I am so excited to have Richard Paul Evans, author of the Michael Vey series, coming here on September 15th. The students are also thrilled!

So here is to a fabulous school year with tons of great books!!!
