Newbery Medal Predictions

Members of the Mock Newbery Book Club cast their ballots this week. The winner of the 2012 FES Mock Newbery Award will be announced at a 4th and 5th grade assembly on Friday, January 13th.

In the meantime, students and teachers at FES have been having a great time trying to predict which book will win the Newbery Medal. The winner of the actual Newbery Medal will be announced live on January 23, 2012 from Dallas, Texas.
