"It's Cool" "It's a place of our own" "There's room to study" "I'd like a program about writing poetry" "How about a movie?"
If you haven't been in to see THE YOUTH ROOM, you should come!!
We've got comfy chairs, a big table to work on, and a pretty good selection of books!
There's a selection of games and puzzles in here, which you can use here or check out and take home.
We also have four brand new really good computers!
Rules: Keep it quiet, some of us are studying. No food or drink to mess up the place. It's our space so let's keep it neat.
Roy Eberhardt's father has been transferred from Montana to Florida and Roy isn't happy about the change. But one day, while he is on the bus to Trace Middle School, he spies a kid running like the wind. What strikes him is that the kid has no shoes on.
Roy couldn't suspect that his life is about to get a lot more interesting. In this Newbery Honor book (2003) for young adults there are some very intriguing characters, among them are: Officer Delinko, who manages to get the windows of his Crown Vic police car spray painted black when he falls asleep on stakeout duty; Curly, the beleaguered construction foreman; Garrett, Roy's classmate who is the king of phony farts; Beatrice the Bear, Mullet Finger's sister and, last but not least, Mullet, a run-away with a cause.
Other characters include the poisonous snakes with sparkly tails, the alligators in the portable latrines on the construction site, the slippery fish and, most important of all, the owls.
Hoot also asks the question, what actions are justifiable when the cause is right. It's a fun book.
