March Book Madness
March Book Madness is a bracket-style tournament where books go head-to-head in competition. Each round, students all over the world vote online the books they think deserve to move on in the tournament until only one book remains. Central Junior High students have the opportunity to learn about the March Madness books through book talks, video book trailers, and, of course, by reading the books. Students who read March Madness books or vote for winners can earn small prizes from the library...because READERS ARE WINNERS!
The CJH library, with the direction of Gena Montgomery, a teacher-librarian,  provides the best resources, supports the curriculum in every instructional area, and enriches the lives of the students and staff of Central Junior High.
