Students are sharing their favorite books, favorite book quotes, and the names of books they are currently reading. Beautifully decorated posters are being shared via the library Twitter account and authors are being tagged so they’ll see that kids LOVE their books. Thanks, Coert Voorhees, for recognizing and appreciating the students who love your work!

SE-YA Book Festival


The SE-YA Book Festival will be here soon.  Which books have you read?  See the list HERE.  Sadly, we don’t have many of them in our school library, but you can borrow them from the Linebaugh Public Library System (see me if you don’t have a library card).  Oakland High School has started an excellent online book discussion.  I send you there just to see their collection of book reviews and book trailers for many of the authors who will be attending the festival: CLICK HERE.  We’ll be learning soon how Smyrna West students will be selected to attend the festival.  Hint:  READ!

Soar to New Heights

Edited to announce:  Let it be known that we were HONORABLY MENTIONED in the contest.
That means we won $100!!!
The judges said we should have included the words (subtitles) to the rap.  (Hmmmmm.  I think someone may have suggested that.)

No worries!  We worked hard and produced a great product that celebrates just a bit of the good things happening at Smyrna West.
