Literature Leaders We will have a school-wide focus on literature this year at CMS. Watch this corner of the Middle School Matters each week for literature news and topics *Has your class been to the new CMS library? If not you will go soon. Mrs. Whitehead will be sharing some very important information about our library procedures this year. *Make sure that you have a book with you at ALL times. When you have extra time, you should ALWAYS spend that time reading. *How many books did you read last year? Try to double that number this year. *Ask your teacher what book they are currently reading for pleasure? Mrs. Davis just finished reading The Hunger Games trilogy and Mr. Fountain is reading Okay for Now by Gary Schmidt.
