Reading Banquet

Bookstock 2012: Peace Out and Read!

On Tuesday, March 20th, Lexington Middle School will host a "reading banquet" in the P.E. Complex. The theme for this year's banquet is "Bookstock 2012: Peace Out and Read!" For this celebration of reading, each reading class will decorate a table based upon a favorite book-- 40 tables in all!

The "viewing" will begin at 6:30 p.m., so everyone will have an opportunity to see all the tables. At 7:00, dessert will be served by LMS students, all dressed in their 60's tie-dye shirts.

Our Bookstock program includes a countdown of "The Top 10 Books at LMS," featuring prominent Nebraskans counting down to #1. The program also includes several video "book trailers" that students have created to go with the books used for their tables. 

Students, parents, grandparents, and all of the community are invited to attend this special night dedicated to reading.

Tickets are $4 for all ages and may be purchased through any of the teachers or students or by calling Lexington Middle School (324-2349). Tickets will also be sold at the door; however, seating is limited. All proceeds will be used to purchase new books for the LMS Library.
