BES students enjoy pirate-themed wrap up party

Students from Brookside Elementary gathered at the Jessamine County Public Library on Monday to celebrate finishing the book Stowaway! (Puppy Pirates book number one) 

The second and third-grade students read the entire book in five weeks. 

This was the first year the elementary school hosted an online book club. During the readings, the students answered questions on a blog and the author of the book, Erin Soderberg read them. 

During the wrap-up party, students skyped with Soderberg and asked her questions about her book and her career.

The event ended with a scavenger hunt with pirate treasure prizes.
