Another New Book

A series that has gotten a lot of attention lately is the vampire series by Stephenie Meyer. The books published so far are Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse. The final book of the series Breaking Dawn will be released on August 2. A companion book, Midnight Sun, is Twilight told from the guy's perspective. The movie of Twilight will come out in December. I highly suggest you reading the series.

February stuff

Here are the programs for the month of February:

The performers that were to come on the 8th cannot make it. Instead, we will watch the movie Stomp the Yard. It is rated PG-13 so permission slips will be needed for those under 13. It will be in the main meeting room and start at 2:00pm. Many students do not have school that day so come join us for the movie.

We will have our Teen Advisory Club meeting on the 10th. We will be discussing programs for April and for the summer. Any 6th through 12th grader is invited to attend.

We will show the movie Bridge to Terabithia on the 19th. It will begin at 6pm in the main meeting room. Refreshments will be provided.
