Our annual Scholastic Book Fair was held in December and as always it was a huge success. We sold over $1200 worth of books and merchandise, which means our library will receive $600 in Scholastic books! Many thanks to all the parents who volunteered to help out at the book fair. We couldn’t have done it without your help.
Kristy Kemper-Hodge, the wonderful youth librarian at the Corvallis Public Library, will visit LPMS on Wed. March 8th for a book discussion on A Night Divided by Jennifer Nielsen from this year’s Oregon Battle of the Books selections. Kristy will be in the purple area of the library during lunch time/outdoor rec. Please encourage your children to attend. They do not need to be members of an OBOB team and Kristy is very engaging. The conversations often lead to other great books.
Speaking of OBOB our school competition will take place Feb. 22-24 during lunctime/outdoor rec.

Congratulations to 8th grader Christina Lundahl, the winner of our school Geography Bee. And congrats to all of the students who qualified and participated in our school competition. The questions were very difficult, but you did great.
