Don’t Forget to Meet (and Triviatize!) (New Word for You, Mr. Webster)

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on December 8, 2008


OK,  some things to remember for this week. The Blatant Bibliophiles are meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, at 8 AM. If you are doing Reading Bowl and you missed Mr. Bradford’s meeting today, I will have a little bit of info for you. Also, we are having Trivia on Friday, December 12. Trivia will begin promptly at 11:45, 12:45, and 1:45. You can come to the media center at the beginning of each lunch period and bring a sack lunch or something from the cafeteria. We will have snacks and drinks. The winning team from each lunch will have pizza next Tuesday, December 16 during your lunch period. If you are participating in Reading Bowl, I have a list of rules and some sample questions. You also need to let Mr. Bradford know for certain that you are participating and what books you are reading so that we can make sure that we have all twenty Peach Books covered.

Let’s Say Thanks To Our Soldiers with Help From Xerox

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on December 8, 2008

[clearspring_widget title=”Xerox – Let’s Say Thanks” wid=”47d6d01110aa5765″ pid=”493d460c729fb13b” width=”307″ height=”361″ domain=””]

Use this cool widget from Xerox to send a fab card created by elementary students to our soldiers. It doesn’t matter if you support the war; we still need to support our troops who are keeping us safe and free. While we are here at home with our families for the holidays, they are far from home and lonely. Make their holidays brighter by sending a free card, compliments of Xerox. It only takes a moment to send a card that can brighten a soldier’s day forever. You can visit the website whenever you want and share it with your friends and family so they can send a card as well. Just click on the artwork on the widget to go to or click on “get & share” to get the widget. You can borrow the widget and post it on your website, blog, or social networking site like MySpace or FaceBook. You have a choice of artwork for the card as well as greetings for the soldiers. Why not send a card every day and ask everyone you know to send one, too?
