The deadline for dodge ball teams has been extended slightly so if you have the desire to put together a team stop in Mr. Croley's room today to get a form. Teams are made up of seven members and each team is guaranteed two games with the chance to move on and claim the grand prize, "CA$H ---- Clubs, teams, and organizations are especially encouraged to put together a dodge ball team and bring it. Who doesn't want to see the French Club go up against the Spanish Club for bragging rights? Perhaps the quick feet of the Soccer team taking on the Lacrosse team, or maybe the Math Club battle against the Chess Club? Rec-ball teams could even reunite for another shot at victory. How about a high school teacher team throwing down against the junior high staff? Don't have a team? No worries. We urge you to come watch the action. For a small fee you can get in the door and have your name in a drawing for amazing giveaways that will take place throughout the event.

BOOK CLUB - We are reading MT Anderson’s Feed. Within the world of Feed, everyone is plugged in, that is, we get the latest news, shopping discounts, scores and updates, all the things we NEED to know, beamed directly into our heads. Yes that’s right, we are all plugged into the feed, thus everyone is properly INFORMED so we know how to behave and just what to buy. But, when a young teen challenges the feed and wants to unplug, the powers that be decide that is just too dangerous. Imagine the risk of a young teenager actually thinking for themselves! - MT Anderson sets up a disturbing dystopian world of tomorrow in his novel, Feed.

Book Club just started reading this novel. Mr. B has a handful of copies, otherwise check the library. This is a great young adult, dystopian novel of how wonderful, and possibly horrific the world of tomorrow can be. (3/10)
