As we welcome new students in August, the community can prepare by delving in to the wonderful book, Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper. Eleven-year-old Melody has a photographic memory. She’s the smartest kid in her whole school – but no one knows it, because Melody can’t talk. She can’t walk. She can’t write. Melody’s story is one full of heartache and hope. Get ready to meet a girl whose voice you’ll never, ever forget.

Students are invited to do an independent read. It would be an excellent read-a-loud selection for the family, as well!
