Participating in the California Young Reader Medal (CYRM) has been a Meadows tradition for many years. All classes participate during read-alouds in the library in the Picture Book categories. In addition, Team Meadows is also challenging all fourth and fifth grade students to participate in the Intermediate category of chapter books. This is an optional activity and students must complete all three novels on their own time. And the Nominees are: The War I Finally Won by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, The Detective's Assistant by Kate Hannigan, and The Losers Club by Andrew Clements. After each book is read, students should see Mrs. Primm to fill out their CYRM form. All books must be completed by late March. Students who complete the 3 Book Challenge will be invited to the library for a CYRM Voting Party.
