Here’s how to win…
Each day during the month of April, a different mystery to solve will be posted on the lunchroom and media center doors. If you know the answer, write it down with the day’s date and give it to Mrs. Borck in the media center. All correct entries for the month will be placed in the drawing for the Hunger Game Trilogy and Mockingjay pin. We even have some laminated movie premier posters to give away.

Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!

The Hunger Games movie premier is this Friday, the 23rd. The kids are all talking about it so I felt this would be the perfect theme for celebrating National School Library Month(April). We finally finished the bulletin board today and I think it looks awesome! I can’t wait to see what the kids think tomorrow. More activities are in the works including our school’s 1st annual Hunger Games, a mini bow and arrow shooting contest, Hunger Games t-shirts, and a contest with the three book set and Mockingjay pin as prizes. More details coming soon. May the odds be ever in your favor! 🙂

We also did the huge picture window in the office with the movie premier posters. We will be using these as prizes in our upcoming contest. The parachutes were such fun!

Super excited to see the new movie coming out in March!

Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, “The Hunger Games.” The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat’s sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place.

Excellent Book
