Marathon Writes – Are you one of the secret writers that Dr. Lancaster talked about who enjoy writing but keep it for yourself? Now’s the time to bring your creativity and stories, poems, graphic novel stories, or plays into the sunlight by entering them in Marathon Writes. Whether you’re starting from scratch on an entry or giving a jolt to some earlier work, stop by and see Dr. Lancaster in the library and tell her what you’re working on. She’s also looking for some students who would like to meet with a mentor in the library to get your work a competitive edge by learning how to do outstanding storytelling and format your entry at the same time. Don’t forget, the top prize is $100 for middle school and $100 for high school! The deadline is March 31.
Superintendent’s Ultimate Readers Awards (SURA) – Want to make your teachers happy? Keep working along toward qualifying for the Superintendent’s Ultimate Readers Awards ceremony. There are 3 ways to qualify: log 40 minutes of reading a day outside of school, read and log 15 books, or complete your AR goals at 85% correct. And, now that you’re on track to come to the ceremony, don’t forget the great Dolphin Research Center incentive awards. DRC knows the importance of reading to success in life so they want to encourage all students to read by offering fun prizes for you and your family to enjoy at DRC. Remember that everyone who qualifies for SURA automatically qualifies for a chance at the DRC prize drawing. Once you’ve qualified for SURA, all you have to do to be in the drawing is to get a permission form from your ELA teacher signed by your parents and turned in so the Dolphin Research Center can use your picture or video for DRC publicity. Monroe County Schools also is giving away one Kindle Fire to a middle school student and one to high school. To qualify for that Bonus Drawing you need to have earned 100 AR points at 85% correct. The deadline for reading is March 31. All documentation is due to your ELA teacher by April 15.
Teens Read and Sunshine State Young Readers Awards—Now if you’re still going to be hungry after the nice snacks from SURA and thoughts of a fun day at DRC, reading five books in your grade level category from Teens Read for high school and Sunshine State Young Readers Awards for middle school qualifies you to come to a donut party in the library. How’s that for a good nutritional snack?  The deadline for qualifying for the Teens Read and Sunshine State Young Readers Awards snack party is March 31.
Do you need some help in Math in Middle School or High School Math??  There are Math tutors available after school on Thursdays in Ms. Joshua’s room 2301.  Make sure you bring something to work on.
