Looking forward to reading with you!Mrs. McCaulley
Thanks to an AASD Foundation Grant, award winning author, Paul Voloponi, visited the library and met with Mrs. Lewis's 7th graders. He gave them feedback on one piece of their own writing.
The students also learned about the writing process and different writing techniques, such as alliteration.
It was an amazing experience for our young writers!
Each month, the library will select a library patron to feature as its Spotlight Reader.
This student will be featured on the library bulletin board, on the AAJHS listserv, and in an episode of Junior Paw Productions.
We’re proud of our library patrons!
Our Spotlight Reader for November is 9th grader, Kelly B. Kelly’s favorite genre is fantasy because things out of the ordinary happen in fantasy stories.
If she wrote a story herself, it would be fantasy because she would love to have the opportunity to create a setting where the story would take place. She’d like the freedom to make the setting anything she wanted.
Other than reading, Kelly likes listening to music, talking to friends, and ice skating.
We have a TON of great fantasy books for you to enjoy!
From Harry Potter to Percy Jackson… stop in and check out our amazing fantasy section at your AAJHS Library!
