Book Swap   05/08/2017



Attea Middle School is sponsoring its sixth annual Book Swap for all grade levels on June 1 and we need your help.  It's the perfect time for our students to load up on books to read over the summer.  With this in mind, students are encouraged to bring in gently used fiction or non-fiction middle school level books they no longer want or need.  Please bring them to Mrs. Horban (B304), Mrs. Felman (B305), the LRC, or the Office before May 31.

For each book brought in, the student will receive a ticket to use to swap for a different book they want to read on June 1.  For example, if a student brings in 3 books, they receive 3 tickets to exchange for 3 books to take home to read.  The Attea School-wide Book Swap will take place on June 1, 2017, in the cafeteria, during all three lunch periods and during all XBlocks. 

WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY!  WHAT AN EVENT!  Thanks for helping Attea Middle School make our 6th annual Book Swap a success and getting books in the hands of our students over the summer! 

Happy reading!
Diane Horban, Laura, Nekola, and Jenny Felman

A sincere thank you to all the parents who attended our 7th Grade Curriculum Night on Wednesday evening. We had well over 100 Jigsaw families rotating through the student block schedules, and the teachers enjoyed seeing so many new and familiar faces.
