Yes, students are already reading their 7Reads books. 7Reads is a summer reading program. Students choose (actually, they run most of the program – we just manage it) one book from a list of seven titles. The district gives each student a copy of the book he/she chose. We delivered the bulk of the titles this past Tuesday (May 21st). Today, we had several students reading their books in the library, and they were at least halfway through!

|Freshmen will be attending their Awards Ceremony today, so we had ladies in long dresses and gentlemen in ties wandering in the Loquacious this morning. One young man asked for help in getting his tie tied. Another Freshman did a demonstration ….|
|And then a horde descended and worked on the tie ….|
|Finally, Mr. Pruitt stopped in and took a look at the tie (which was in great shape).|
So, here is the video …
The story behind the video …
Mrs. Burke graciously let us display cereal box projects in the library. I emailed her today to say they were ready for pick up. She asked if she could bring her class as labor. I replied yes give them antennae so they look like ants. She indicated that her fifth period class would probably love to do that. Well, we just happened to have a bopper headband in the gift cabinet ….. and you just witnessed the result above.
The two cakes (yes, TWO) and bags of chips are GONE. Seventy-two students joined the Principal’s Reading Honor Roll Club. If students read thirty books, they receive a certificate signed by the principal. Sixty of the seventy-two read at least fifteen books and were invited to a party held in the library. Studnts really enjoyed the cake, chips, and soda.
We are really proud of our students who read 4,491 books this year! One student, Tyquan Gentry, read 959 books.
