BOOK WEEK is coming up!

Next week, each of the 3 AIS campuses will be celebrating  

This is perfect timing, as April is 
School Library Month in the United States.  :)

This year's Book Week theme at AIS is:

One World, Many Stories.

We will be having a variety of activities throughout the week... to celebrate how AWESOME books are! (...and reading... and libraries... and literacy... and Ms. Stacia... Oh wait, haha... I'm getting carried away.)   :P

Below is an outline of all the fantastic happenings taking place 
at the middle school during Book Week:
