Congratulations to Enrique Gomez and Kaylee Riffer, who joined the ILC Reader Hall of Fame for reading all twenty books on the Abraham Lincoln Book Award list for 2017. This is Enrique's second year in a row of accomplishing this challenge. Each earned a $10 Amazon gift card. They also were invited to a pizza party along with the several other students who read at least four books from the list to qualify to vote for their favorite. Any student who read at least four books was entered into a raffle for a Kindle Fire. Our two winners were Ailyn Daruwala and Kaylee Riffer.
The 2018 Abraham Lincoln Book Award nominees were announced earlier this month. Between now and March 2018, Lakes students who read at least four books from the list will qualify to vote for their favorite as part of the state-wide contest. If students read all twenty, they will become members of the ILC Reader Hall of Fame.
The ILC is offering a fun incentive to encourage students to read for fun, whether or not a book is on the 2018 Abe list. Between now and April 14, which is the last day of National Library Week, students may earn two raffle tickets for, first, reading a book for fun and, next, giving Mrs. Kent and/or Mrs. Piekutowski a brief book review. The more reading they do, the more raffle tickets they earn. Students may use the raffle tickets for a chance to win a copy of one of the books from the 2018 Abe Award list. The winning raffle tickets for each book will be drawn after school on Thursday, April 13.
See Mrs. Piekutowski or Mrs. Kent with questions.
