This week is Authors Week. We are fortunate to have not just one but two authors visiting Pennekamp: Debra Garfinkle (who writes as D. L. Green) and D.J. MacHale. They will address our students during assemblies on Tuesday and Wednesday.
In other library news, the book club for 4th grade met last Friday. We had a good time discussing The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and making our own origami Yodas. Our next selection is Marley: A Dog Like No Other, by John Grogan. The next meeting will be March 16, a couple of weeks after the talent show.
The book club for 5th grade meets this Friday. We will discuss The Merchant of Death, by D.J. MacHale. We have already chosen our selection for the meeting after this one: The Aviary, by Kathleen O'Dell. Unlike most of our choices, this one is very new and thus may be available only in hardcover and e-book editions.
Please note: Scholastic book orders are due by February 15. The items that are ordered will be distributed after ski week. Thanks to the many volunteers who assist with the Scholastic flyers--I couldn't do it without you!
