Every year the 5th grade students have an opportunity to read and discuss three newly published books for the 5th Grade Newbery Book Club. The students meet in the library to discuss each book with our school librarian. Each title is chosen by the students from a collection of books being considered for that year’s Newbery Award.

This year the book club read and discussed “Ghost” by Jason Reynolds, “Paper Wishes” by Lois Sepahban and “The Key to Extraordinary” by Natalie Lloyd. The real Newbery Awards will be announced on January 23.

We hope that one of their choices wins!
