Dragon Reading Challenge

In order to promote and encourage school-wide reading, the CHS Library introduces the Dragon Reading Challenge for our students and faculty.  Each month, beginning in January, a challenge for the month will be announced.  Students and teachers may sign up at any time to participate.  They will be enrolled in a Schoology Course.  Once a reader has finished the book he/she has chosen, they are asked to post a brief comment/review about the book on Schoology.  You can also post on the Padlet at the bottom of this page and on social media with the hashtag:  #DragonReadingChallenge.  Not on social media?  No problem!  Just submit your written or recorded comment on your book to Mrs. Haggard, and she’ll post it for you.    Each month there will be a new challenge.  Students and teachers who complete the challenge for the month will earn a digital badge. New this year:  Use Flipgrid on your computer to make a post about your book!

Look for each month's challenge below. Contact one of your friendly librarians to sign up!

The CHS Library's physical space will be closing early this year for testing and to pack for the move to our new space.  However, our virtual library is always open!  The challenge for April-May is to read or listen to a book from our OverDrive collection.  To access OverDrive on a computer, use this link:  OVERDRIVE.  The link is also available on the CHS Library web page.  If you prefer, you can access it on your phone or other mobile device; just download the OverDrive app.  No matter which way you choose, you will need your Power School ID number and your birthdate (format 5/4/2003) to log in.  Please see Mrs. Haggard if you need log-in info.  After you read a book (or more than one if you want), just post on Schoology.
