6th Grade Book Buddies

I would like to thank Brenda Pruett for organizing and leading one of our new student organizations this school year:  6th Grade Book Buddies.  This wonderful organization meets once a month after school and periodically during the school day, depending on student schedules.  We are going to change the day of the monthly meeting.  The Book Buddies will now meet on the third Tuesday of every month.  We were competing with the Science Club and we want our students to belong to Science Club and Book Buddies!  The next meeting will be January 17th.
