Teen Tech Week

March 2-8 is the American Library Association's Teen Tech Week. The Lindero Library invites you to celebrate by visiting the Lindero Library Webpage, listening to an oral booktalk voicethread (click on the booktalks link), respond to the fun book characters survey, and scroll down to the bottom of the page to play "How Well Do You Know Your World" and practice your geography skills. The library will award a prize to the top points earner. To enter your score, take a screenshot of the screen with your final score (click Alt+PrintScrn) and paste it in an email to Mrs. Lofton. Have fun playing!

Some things to remember:
  • There is just one month left (until March 31) to complete reading, quizzing, and voting for the California Young Reader Medal nominated books.

  • Be sure to read a book by Lisa Yee in preparation for her visit on May 14. All students who read one of her books and complete the AR quiz on it will be invited to the assembly. We also encourage you to consider buying one or more of her books in order to attend the book signing on the day of her visit. See the flyer for more information.

Author Lisa Yee Visits Lindero

We are very excited to announce that - thanks to generous funding from the Lindero PFC - Lindero will be hosting author Lisa Yee on May 14. Ms. Yee has written four popular award-winning books for young people. Hearing and meeting an author is a terrific experience and we hope that all our students will want to take advantage of this opportunity. In order to attend the assembly with Ms. Yee, students need to read and successfully complete an Accelerated Reader quiz on one or more of her books. Click here for a flyer with more information about the event. Please see Mrs. Lofton or your language arts teacher if you have any questions.
