Banned Books Week Sept. 27-Oct. 3, 2015
What does it mean if a book has been challenged or banned?  A challenge is a formal, written complaint filed with a library or school about a book's content or appropriateness. The majority of challenges (roughly 70%) are brought by parents.  Each challenge attempts to remove books from school curricula or library shelves.   A book that has been banned is permanently removed from the school or library where the challenge was initiated.  Don’t take for granted your freedom to choose what you want to read!

Contest - All HS students are eligible to enter the Voice of Democracy contest sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Write an essay on the topic “My Vision for America” and make a 3-5 minute audio recording of the essay. Cash prizes are awarded. Submission deadline is Nov. 1st. See Mrs. Stocks for more details.
