The ASD Reading Games Are Back!
The Reading Games are back!  Starting Monday, November 2nd, keep track of the time you spend reading at home, in school, on the bus, etc, and you could win (semi) cool prizes, the respect of your friends (and librarian) and bragging rights!

All you have to do is read at least two hours in each of the seven genres in our library.  If you don't like fiction, there are corresponding non-fiction sections you can read from as well.  Every day or two log on to and record your minutes.  Once a week Ms. Roohi will tally all the minutes and distribute the genre book marks!  Collect all seven!

And this year since the Reading Games is in November, which is Native American Heritage Month, try reading something about Native Americans or Alaskan Natives for the Historical Genre!

This is also an interschool competition against Mears, Hanshew, Central, Clark, Northern Lights and Gruening.  So even if you only like to read in one or two genres, keep recording your minutes so our school will win the district competition!  You can see the district results here.

Thank you!

First, thank you to Chevron for funding our entire Donor's Choose project for $900 in new books!  The books will start arriving in the next two weeks.

Thanks also to all the students, parents and staff who supported our book fair last week.  We sold over $3000 worth of books and earned about $775 for our library.  And an even bigger thank you to those who donated to the library straight out!
