  • The Dalton Award!

    For the past few weeks, First Program students have been reading a selection of FIVE fantastic picture books, keeping one essential question in mind: which of these books deserves to win The Dalton Award? This student choice award will be granted to the book that best meets the criteria discussed: Artwork, Creativity, and Excitement. Students will be exercising their right to vote in this book election, set to take place the week of May 16th. We cannot wait to see which of these incredible choices will win!
