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.
Students that read the selected book and write a review of the book in Destiny will be entered in a prize drawing. All books are available as an ebook through Destiny. We also have a limited number of paper copies in the library.
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.
Students that read the selected book and also write a review of the book in Destiny will be entered in a prize drawing. All books are available as an ebook through Destiny.
Summary: In an alternate world where industrialization has caused many species of carbon-eating dragons to thrive, Owen, a slayer being trained by his famous father and aunt, and Siobahn, his bard, face a dragon infestation near their small town in Canada.
What do I do after I read the book?
Students in grades 5-12 who read the selected book and write a review in Destiny before the end of the quarter (Nov 4) will get their name in a prize drawing. First quarter's prize will be $50 Visa gift cards.
