Welcome back to school. I hope you had a fabulous and restful winter break!
We will begin reading the California Young Reader Medal nominees in the upcoming weeks.
The California Young Reader Medal (CYRM) program encourages recreational reading of popular literature among the young people of our state. Since its inception in 1974, millions of California children have nominated, read, and voted for the winners of the California Young Reader Medal.
For a list of the nominated books, check out the Web Resources Page.
All K - 3rd classes will have the picture book nominees read to them during library time.  Students in 4th - 6th grades can read the intermediate category nominees, if they choose to do so.  Reading the intermediate books is strictly voluntary for students who are interested in participating. All voting must be completed by March 15th. 
In March, we will also celebrate Dr. Seuss's Birthday during Read Across America week. More details to follow  . . . . 
Happy reading,
Mrs. Steinberg
