Maine State Chickadee Award
This year, the 2nd and 3rd grade classes read all ten of the books nominated for the Maine Chickadee Award and voted on which one we want to see win! We’re still waiting on statewide results, but at Harriet Beecher Stowe, the winner was The Catawampus Cat.
Maine Student Book Awards
4th and 5th graders independently read from the list of nominees and those who submitted three or more summaries for books they had read were invited to the voting party where we cast our ballots for best book. We are still awaiting statewide results, but at Harriet Beecher Stowe, the winner (by just one vote) was Orphan Island, with a three way tie for second! A close contest indeed!
