ONE BOOK – ONE SMOKY HILL
Community Literacy Project
The SHHS Accountability committee in conjunction with the Arapahoe District Library invites all members of our community (students, parents, teachers and staff members) to join us in reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins during the month of March.
We want to model that reading is fun, and this book presents many topics that lend themselves to lively discussions.
Students who read the book will have the opportunity to participate in several activities, such as:
Take part in one or more book talks in our SHHS Library.
Send a book related question via text or email to the Arapahoe Library District “Answer Squad.”
Respond to a book-related survey online.
Each time a student participates in one of these activities his/her name will be entered in a drawing for prizes. We literally have hundreds of prizes to award!!
Detailed information will be coming out soon, so stay tuned! We hope that you will join in the fun! The Hunger Games is reasonably priced (approximately $5.00) and is available at local retail outlets as well as on Amazon. We also have several copies in our library available for check-out.
Already read it? No problem – you can still participate in the events for prizes, and we will be publishing a list of alternate titles that you may be interested in reading as well!
Let's Read Together!
Prizes include movie tickets, a Kindle Fire, food coupons and more!
