Teen Read Week is celebrated October 9-15, but we are celebrating all through the month of October in the Ralston High School Library Media Center.
Since the theme for TRW is "Read for the Fun of It," we are inviting students to do just that. Sign up at the circulation desk to read ONE book during the month of October. That's it, just one book. It can't be a book you are assigned for class, but a book that you are going to read "for the fun of it."
Once you've completed that book, your name will go in the drawing to win one of four prizes: Seniors can win a $20 gas card, Juniors can win a pair of movie tickets, Sophomores can win a $20 Target gift card, and Freshmen can win a $20 Barnes and Noble gift card.
Sign up today!
Spanish Club will be meeting TODAY, October 5th at 3:30 in A104. We will be working on decorations for the room for Sweet Treat Night! Bring a bag of candy to contribute to the event!
