What is TAG?

If you are in the 7th grade or 8th grade and LOVE (and I mean LOVE) to read...then TAG is for you! Members are tasked with reading at least 20 of the 24 book nominees and writing reviews for each. We meet once a month during lunch. Our next meeting is Thursday, December 1st . We will vote for our favorite 12 books (Trendy Twelve) in April.

Every vote affects the outcome, so it is very important that you read ALL the books on our list! 

Remember, you are not just reading for your personal taste but to select those books that will appeal to a wide variety of our students at LMS and across the district.
