Come Join Mrs. Susina for the St. Benedict “Booked for Recess” Club

 The “Booked for Recess” Club will meet on Tuesday, March 1st, during recess.  We will be reading a 2014 Newbery Award Honor book, The Year of Billy Miller by Kevin Henkes.  Students should have the book read before our meeting date so that we can discuss the entire book.

When Billy Miller has a mishap at the statue of the Jolly Green Giant at the end of summer vacation, he ends up with a big lump on his head. What a way to start second grade, with a lump on your head! As the year goes by, though, Billy figures out how to navigate elementary school, how to appreciate his little sister, and how to be a more grown up and responsible member of the family and a help to his busy working mom and stay-at-home dad.

Students can check this book out of our school library or the public library.  If you would like Mrs. Susina to order a copy of the book for you, please send $8 (cash if possible) to school by Thursday, February 11th.  This will allow enough time for the books to arrive and for your child to have the book read by our club date.
