Update regarding the JMS Newbery Challenge 9/27/23


Hello Jags! The Newbery Challenge has been an exciting way for students to learn more about books that won the Newbery Medal. Based on assessing the current student body this month, we are phasing out the Newbery Challenge and will have other exciting ways to engage with great books here at JMS. Don't worry! We still have all the amazing titles and they are now located in the Fiction Section of the Library with a special "star" sticker on the spine label that indicates the book is a Newbery title.  


Please reach out to Mr. McKaughan, the Teacher-Librarian at JMS, if you are interested in learning more about the John Newbery award and the amazing books in our collection. Please email [email protected] if you have any questions.
