March Madness Book Challenge:

The first annual March Madness Book Challenge will be starting March 9 and going through April 3rd.  This is a competition I am starting to encourage students to read more.  The "tournament" is set up similar to the NCAA College Basketball Tournament, except there are only 16 teams involved. The goal is to read more books and record more "points" than the other team. I am very excited to see how this plays out.  If the students enjoy it, it will be come an annual thing!
