Summer Reading Challenge

Can you read 100 minutes or more per week? Of course you can! Use this reading log to keep track and turn in to Mrs. Carroll or your English teacher when we return to school in the fall. These logs will be sent to the district and entered into a chance for our school to win a $10,000 library makeover!

Not sure what to read? Take a look at the titles on the Battle of Books reading list (see below). The contest is in March of 2018. Don't have a team? Don't worry. We'll help you find a team in September.

Did you know that in June the Los Angeles Public Library will be sending you a new library card which will have NO FINES EVER? Amazing! Use your new card to rack up those reading minutes this summer.

Battle of the Books

Please plan on meeting in the library during lunch (bring your lunch) every Tuesday for the rest of February and March.

This will be time to meet with your teams, make sure everyone is on track with your reading, and have PRACTICE COMPETITIONS. We are one month away from our Millikan Battle of the Books!
