Taking first place with the most wins overall in grades 5 & 6 —The Book Blitz: Nate White, JC Davis and Nolan Wald, second place—The Book Whisperers: Emily McPhetres and Serria Oaks, and in third place—The Panda Bears: Vivian Shallcross and Camelia Bell. In grades 2-4, first place—The Story Stealers: Mary Bell, Anna Bell and Atlin Ryan, second place— The Unsocial Teddy Bears: Wade Lloyd, Brody Ferrin and Gary Hinkle, and in third place—The Three Seas: CC Elliot, Corwin Sundberg and Calvin Bell. Thank you to the Chilkat Valley News, Haines Real Estate and Karen Garcia for your generous donations this year for cash prizes and to the families who support the annual Scholastic Book Fairs in the school library. Funds from your purchases are used to purchase books and prizes for this event. Over 340 books were handed out to students as prizes.

A huge thank you to Jeanne Kitayama, Teri Kanahele, Barb Blood, Holly Davis, Karen Garcia and Shannon McPhetres who helped write over 500 questions. I would especially like to thank Karen Garcia, who not only wrote questions, but was here every day to help make this annual event happen for the students in the Haines School.

Leigh Horner, Haines School Librarian
