This beloved classic novel and movie is often on readers’ “Top 10” lists of their favorite books. It’s a story of growing up in a southern town in the 1930s and the trial of a black man accused of attacking a white girl.  It is one of the most banned books in American history for “offensive language and racism,” but it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1961.                                                                                                                                                            


Do you need volunteering experience to help you get those great scholarships? Mrs. Duitsman is hosting a volunteer opportunity at Lewis Central High School on Friday, October 14th in the high school library from 9 am to 11am.  We don't have school this day, but if you are interested in supporting a non-profit organization, this is a great opportunity!  Students will be helping organize materials for the Iowa Talented and Gifted Association state conference.
