District 87 Elementary Schools Read the Bluestem Nominees
This year all 6 elementary schools participated in our 4th Annual Battle of the Books event. Students read books from the Bluestem 2017 nominee list and studied the plot, title and author. Our Sheridan School team came in 3rd place and had their best showing thus far. I had a wonderful judges panel including: Cindy Helmers, Dr. Hannah, Shirley Jacobs, Jim Cooper, Stacie Ochiltree, Laura Wilson, Janice Ochiltree, Bridgette Beasley and Mary Yount. Washington School came out on top of the double elimination bracket and everyone had a wonderful day!
In 2009 I was given the chance to move into the best job in the world- Library Media Specialist!
