• Jaguar Reading List

    Each year all Thompson students are invited to particpate in a reading challenge across the grades. We encourage our students to read as many of the books on our booklist as they can throughout the year.  The library will keep track of the number of books each student has read and award any students who have read at least 4 of the books by the end of March.  These students will be invited to a party with pizza, and those students who have read 10 of the 12 books will receive an extra prize!  Students may prove to the librarians that they have read the books by: an AR test, a verbal or written short summary, or a student-created book trailer.  


    Our March Madness Book Tournament will be based off of this reading list.  All are invited to play, but its a lot more fun if you've read the books!
