Duquesne English Festival

On Thursday, 3 of our students went down to Duquesne University to compete against other schools in the area in the Duquesne English Festival.  The Duquesne English Festival is a sort of “battle of the books,” where all the students had to read 6 books and participated in competitions about the books.  Our team of students, Erika, Amy, and Joe (pictured above with Ms. Dufalla), did very well!  They got 1st place in Trivia, 2nd in Talk Show, and 2nd in Insights.  Congratulations and thanks for all your hard work preparing for the competition!  We hope all 3 of you will go back next year!


New books!

Thanks to all those late books this year, the library as able to purchase some new books that you’ve been begging for!  Here are the new books:

Burned: A House of Night novel, by PC Cast and Kristin Cast

Sweet Little Lies: An L.A. Candy novel, by Lauren Conrad

The Help, by Kathryn Stockett

The Shadow of Your Smile, by Mary Higgins Clark

Get them this year while you still can!  Luckily, they’re all novels that look like quick, fun reads.

All books are due back to the library by next Friday, May 14.
