Lunch Bunch
Our next Lunch Bunch will meet on Thursday, May 14 in Mrs. Whitmore's room. We'll be discussing Wendy Mass's book The Candymakers. Guess what we'll have for dessert?!?

Here's a brief description of the book:
This has been reviewed as being a cross between The Mysterious Benedict Society and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Four children have been chosen to compete in a national competition to find the tastiest confection in the country. Who will invent a candy more delicious than the Oozing Crunchorama or the Neon Lightning Chew? This sweet, charming, and cleverly crafted story, told from each contestant's perspective, is filled with mystery, friendship, and juicy revelations. Who wouldn't want to pick this one up?

Join us for a fun finale to this year's Lunch Bunch meetings! RSVP to Mrs. Stevenson. Remember to bring your lunch - we'll provide the treats!

See you there!

Mrs. Jipson

To Read Books is...
by Cecilia Templeton '17

To travel far and wide
And see impossible tasks become possible
With the help of magic and determination
To open your mind
And learn new things
To gain new powers
And become a better person
To meet all kinds of people
And find lifelong friends
To watch friendship conquer evil
And find that love is more powerful than anything
To go on an adventure
And stand an inch from death
To face your deepest fears
And overcome them
To find out more about yourself
And understand more about others
To destroy any obstacles that get in your way
And always have a clever solution
To escape from problems in reality
And immerse yourself in more terrible troubles
