Alvetta Mills, reporting from the library, states that during the past few months students have enjoyed reading books on the Sequoyah Masterlist. This is a booklist compiled by the Oklahoma Library Association. Each student is required to read at least two books from the list, qualifying them to vote for their favorite book. The winning book from Tryon Elementary is "Stonewords: A Ghost Story." Our votes will be tabulated with other schools in Oklahoma that are participating and the winning book of the Sequoyah Children's Book Award will be announced soon. We had several students that have read 10 or more of the 18 books on the Sequoyah Masterlist. They are Haley Albright, Reuise Schoolcraft, Alyshea Lara, Denessa Panak, Rebecca Roper, Jesse Wright and Wesley Madaras. These students will enjoy a pizza party in the library.
