Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher Conferences this Thursday, 4:00 - 7:30. 

Book Fair Tuesday through Thursday -- including during Parent-Teacher Conference.

Books make great Christmas gifts.  

During third term we will be reading historical fiction, biographies, and autobiographies, and literary nonfiction.

These are some titles I've seen at the book fair that I'd like to get.  They would probably interest many students, too.

Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld -- the follow-up to Leviathon
A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park -- based on a true story about life in the Sudan
Heroes of the Valley by Jonathan Stroud  -- the same author who has written the Bartimaeus Trilogy.
Ghostopolis by Doug Tennapel  -- graphic novel
