What is TAG?

TAG (Trendy Advisory Group) is a club for students who love to read! Members read over 20 novels between September and March and choose the 12 best books to promote across the district.

As a TAG member, you help choose books for the Trendy Twelve List. The books are chosen for LMS students and other Blue Valley middle school students. The list includes a variety of genres, age appropriateness, and interest levels to appeal to a wide range of students.

Note: Not all titles may be suitable for sixth graders, who may opt out of a title if needed.

We will meet in the library during lunch.  We will meet once a month.  Between meetings, you should read 4 titles to keep on schedule to vote in April.  

Reminders about meetings will be on the morning announcements. 

If you would like to participate, please let Mrs. Norton know or attend the first TAG meeting.
