"The Branciforte Middle School Library is a safe space where all students are encouraged to learn, explore, reflect and create. We read to increase empathy, expand understanding, and develop ourselves as critical thinkers, consumers, and producers of content. Teachers and librarians work together and collaborate to strengthen 21st Century skills across the curriculum and ensure that students are prepared for high school, college, and career. "
Our B40 BINGO CHALLENGE begins NOW!
After you've read a book that fits the bingo card, give a quick book talk to ANY teacher. Write it in your planner and get your teacher's stamp or initials. When you have a bingo, bring it in to Ms. Boox for a prize. Remember, a BLACKOUT earns you great rewards!
