This week, students in grades K-4 will get a sneak peek at the 2017 Monarch and Bluestem lists. Every year, we have had more students eligible to vote as they have read at least 4 or 5 books off their respective lists. Students in grade 5 previewed the books off of the 2017 Rebecca Caudill Young Readers’ Book Award list. Grades 6-8 read books off this list and copies of these books will be available in the secondary library next year. We wanted to make sure that the 5th graders knew that SBPS encourages them to continue their participation in the book awards when they visit that library in August. Grades 9-12 read books off of the Abraham Lincoln Award list.
