Half Day Book Award

Half Day Students have been reading nominees from the Bluestem List in preparation for voting during the week of March 8. The Bluestem Award is the student choice book award for Illinois students in grades 3-5. Fourth and fifth graders just need to complete two evaluations on their own since we have done two together in library class. Third grade students have done three during library class and just need to do one more on their own. There are only two more weeks before voting so be sure to get your evaluations in before voting begins. So far, 55 Half Day students have qualified to vote. Which book will win? Your votes will determine the answer. 

See the Book Award tab on Mrs. Lathrop's web page for more information, a list of nominees, and evaluation forms.
