For the second year SCC will be using the program One School One Book to promote reading in among our students and staff. This year grades 5-12 have the option of participating each quarter and having their name put in a prize drawing.

Middle School

1st Quarter -- The Silver Child by Cliff McNish
Summary - Six children are drawn to Coldharbour, a wasteland of garbage dumps and gangs on the edge of civilization, for reasons they can't comprehend. Each child undergoes a strange transformation and discovers a special gift. They must learn to use their skills quickly--they soon realize they've been brought together to face a common, fast-approaching enemy set on the destruction of the world.
