Great job beautiful readers

Congratulations to the winners in the 2018 School Library’s Tournament of the Readers. The Beautiful Book Bandits (Selby Long, Lucia Chapell, Ariel Long, Ashlyn Ganey and Marina Loewen) were undefeated this year. Thirty-nine students have been reading, learning facts and even having study groups that covered the 12 books for the tournament this year.

We have been competing every day since the end of January during lunch recess with our final match on Friday with two really strong teams competing. Thank you to the Fireweed Restaurant for their donation of pizza to the winning team and to the families who support the annual Scholastic Book Fair in the school library. Funds from your purchases are used to purchase books and prizes for this event.

A huge thank you to Teri Kanahele, Barb Blood, Maddy Witek, Melanie Witek, Shannon McPhetres and Cheryl Stickler for writing over 480 questions. I would especially like to thank Karen Garcia and Holly Davis who not only wrote questions, but were here every day to judge and to help make this event happen for the students in the Haines School.
