Hello Everyone,

Mrs. Kohlbrenner and I are excited about beginning our new reading groups this year for students who would like the challenge of reading and discussing extra books.
All students should read all 3 books before our meeting on November 3. On Wednesday, November 3, students will come to the media center and we will discuss and participate in some fun activities on these books.
So if you would like to come, please let either Mrs. Kohlbrenner or me know and leave a comment with your name and period of your English class.

The selections for November are:
