So tell me about this crazy club we love to call...
Page Turners is a club in which students read books from an assigned list. We have a lot of fun and twice a year, we all hop on a bus and travel to a far off land (one of the schools in our BOCES district) and answer a lot of questions about books from our list. We do this in a competition style event. Our school's team faces off against teams from other schools. We all compete to see who has the most knowledgeable team! Oh hey, also - the winners of the divisions will get together in May or June to have a final competition!!! ...And did I mention the pizza? You'll have to come to a meeting to find out about the pizza...
...One more thing...if you are interested in visiting the BOCES website to learn about Page Turners in official type language
