Lunch in the Library

I am excited to start Friday lunches in the library with many of you!  We are going to start the year off with the Totman Book Club selection (and Maine Student Book Award nominee) Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library.  Of course, I love this book!  It takes place largely in a library and it is a mystery with lots of action... I think you will love it too!

It is the Britannica Online Encyclopedia, which you can access via MARVEL

Once you've found some articles or links that will be helpful to you in your research, make sure you add them to your own sticky note on this wall:

The Chickadees Are Coming!

Every year we celebrate the Chickadee Award in grand style here at PES.  I have a definite favorite, but I don't get to vote!  Thus, I can't wait to see which book you all choose as the PES winner.
