Name That Book!  District Win!!!!!

 

After reading many, many 2021 Lone Star books and practicing 3x a week since late

February, our Name that Book! team won the Comal ISD Travis Lamb Memorial Name

That Book! bowl for 2022!  They got a score of 75 out of 80, 9 points higher than the

second place team.  Needless to  say, they were thrilled!

Book Fair Results

 

 

Our Scholastic BOGO fair was a huge success with our largest sales to date,

Lone Star Celebration

 

On April 27, we held our Lone Star Challenge celebration.  Invitees played board games,

followed by drawings for more than 35 prizes (books, notebooks, posters, goody bags,

and lots of other cool stuff), and they finished the day with ice cream.  Lots of fun!

Congrats to author Allison (A.K.) Pittman, whose Pudge & Prejudice is now on the 
2022 TAYSHAS list of titles recommended for high school readers! And to think we 
knew her way back when!
 
Did someone say digital books?  We have SORA, an Overdrive program, for access to our district ebooks & audiobooks!  Currently available for all CISD secondary school students.  6th graders will have access to elementary and middle school resources.  7th and 8th graders will have access to elementary, middle school, and high school resources.  
 
You may access Sora by logging into your ClassLink account and clicking on the Sora app.
