Fifth Grade Book Club
The Fifth Grade Book Club at Center was back in action this week after the holiday break. This month's book was One For the Murphys by Lynda Mullaly Hunt. The book was given high praise by all of our readers and was even declared "The best book I ever read!" by one of the students! If you are looking for a great book, check this one out!  
Fourth Grade Book Club
Honus and Me was a homerun with Center's Fourth Grade Book Club.  Students had plenty thoughts and opinions to share revolving around this historical fiction plot. Mrs. Kalik and Mrs. Austin were impressed with both the discussion and turnout.  Way to go readrs!
