Third and Fourth graders have the opportunity read and vote for the state-wide Sequoyah Award winning book. In order to vote at the end of March, they must read or listen to at least 3 books and fill out a Reading Reflection form in the library. Those students who read 6 or more books (and fill out the form) are invited to an ice cream party at the end of the year with the librarians. Nominated books are available in Media D and at the public libraries.
(Not all nominated books are appropriate or recommended for all readers.)
