Middle Schoolers Share Love for Reading During Virtual Book Exchange
Marquis Austin

During last week's Fri-YAY community homeroom, the Middle School hosted its annual Book Exchange. A cherished School tradition, the Book Exchange offers students an opportunity to share their favorite works of literature with their peers. While the ongoing pandemic prevented the event from happening in person this year, it didn't stop the School's fifth, sixth and seventh graders from expressing their love for reading. Thanks to the help of technology teacher Damian Giorlando and Assistant Director Abigail Rojas, students put together an upbeat video of them posing alongside some of their favorite novels, giving their classmates some valuable book recommendations just in time for spring break. Some of these books include A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'engle, Pax by Sara Pennypacker and The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann. The assembly concluded with a presentation from librarian Rebecca Cohen on how to check out books on Sora. Happy reading, Middle Schoolers!
